I hate IT and am disappointed that my management consulting job turned into this IT gig, so am looking for something more strategic. The boutique seems like it only does the cool sexy type work I’m after, but, I did just spend 3 years in consulting. The CPG Strat role is good but I’m not sure if exiting consulting is the best move to keep building my skill set. Any thoughts or challenges to my thinking would be helpful.

Not sure what I want to be when I grow up... just needs to be doing something strategic and planning focused. NOT planning in the delivery sense either.

I don’t know if this is true or not, but I hope to see a day where everyone stays seated and not jump into the aisle as soon as the flight gets to gate. Wait seated to exit. A man can dream! 🤞🏼
