There’s no cut and dry answer to this. If you like the company based on your client work, the position and comp are exciting to you and you don’t want to stay in a law firm in the long-term, then I would seriously consider it. If the company is a dumpster fire of constant fire drills, where you’re always reactively trying to respond to “urgent” issues, then I’d be a hard pass.

Is there a consultancy out there that is focused more on delivering products, solutions and agile outcomes rather than getting hung up on reams of PowerPoint slides and decks after decks that just say the things client might want to hear with tons of micro level management of the language?

And so it begins. Random urgent email from a Partner I’ve never met in a practice not related to ours needing someone this weekend to agree to go on site at a client on the opposite coast for the foreseeable future to lead a project. The client wants one person even though the Partner admits that it should be more than one practice, let alone person to do the work right - but we are giving the client what they want. I am stopping myself from writing back with an immediate “HE!! NO” 🤪
