Consulting Exit Opportunities

Can anyone provide insights into exit opportunities for an associate with 1.5 years of strategy/ops consulting experience? I’m not sure where to begin but I don’t want to be in consulting anymore :)

I’m willing to take a pay cut as well, I just don’t know which roles associates go into? As background I’m currently in a healthcare consulting firm but have skills that can be applied in multiple industries

This is a really good question to answer when a LinkedIn premium account. Bonus is that you'll identify people for informational interview at the same time

Before being promoted to Manager at your current job, you are probably looking at an entry level or a manager role in industry which would likely be two or three removed from a director role.

Thinking about leaving B4. Will be a senior 1 in tax come October. Been doing some thinking and can’t decide if being in tax long term is for me. Want to transition into finance role. Thinking about leaving to be a finance associate somewhere and wanted to get input as the career paths for these moves. Ultimately want to be a CFO I think. I know pay is variable but in northeast is it substantial? Worth foregoing the chance of being partner? Fear is not making it and then being pigeon holed.

I was impacted by Deloitte's COVID layoffs. I was a first year so I only have 10 months of experience with Deloitte in audit, I interned with them too. I have a MACC degree 1.What are some good exit opportunities that I can work with given my experience? 2. Should I apply to positions with Deloitte if they just laid me off?

Who here thinks consulting slides are a lot of bs? I come from a technical role in industry, and it certainly feels that way.

Question about referrals. If someone you don’t personally know reaches out from your network asking for a referral (alum from same school or someone who worked at the same company you did), do you do it, or no?

Need honest opinion from 🐠. Background: previously a big four consultant in tech consulting. Didn’t like the tech implementation work at all and needed to pivot. After obtaining my masters in data science, I landed a good role that actually uses what I’ve learned. However, this role also made me realize that data science (at least in this organization) has a very low ceiling, and is also highly on the technical side. I see myself eventually wanting to move to leadership/management positions.

Still boggles my mind how many mediocre middle aged men sit comfy and undisturbed in the C-suites of agencies and holding companies. Despite all the downsizing and layoffs, so many still remain. Ego and competence at direct inverse. Sigh. This probably belongs in the vent bowl. 😡

I've represented myself in and won several court cases. Spent hours studying state law to craft my case. Got a huge kick out of it.

Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed? Bridges never burned, debating re-kindle conversations...
