HR (Yes, still agency, but less susceptible to layoffs since you’re not tied to a single client. I’ve seen many account people retire into HR/recruiting roles.)

In my first engagement right now. Manager got frustrated because we are spending more time in one aspect of the project longer than we really should. In my head, there are things I still am getting familiar with. Plus, I don’t know what I don’t know and not sure yet what to look for. Then again, I’m just beating myself up for not knowing either. Tell me it gets better please. How many projects did you guys do until you’re fully comfortable with what you’re doing?

How does one transition from big 4 to T2 (like Kearney, LEK, OW etc). I’ve been at EY for a few months now but my project has been nothing but staff aug and a vague technology transformation project for a bank. I was really interested in the strategy work in my undergrad and choose to go the consulting route instead of IB because I wanted to help clients make decisions and it seems like I can mainly get it at T2 firms. Would love some advice on how to get this transition started

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
