Procurement is recession proof. People always need to save money. BUT, I would say BI is the future.

like

I would do BI because data and analytics is a forward looking and rapidly growing space, so exits and advancement should be easier. Procurement is not growing like that. And procurement is becoming less important over time in the USA as service and software become greater % of gdp, meaning less focus on lowering costs of physical procured goods, though that decrease is gradual enough to not matter for a 2-3 year consulting stint.

like

Procurement also oversees procurement of services, such as everything outsourced

like

Accenture is great, and BI is cooler than procurement

funny

Accenture is a better brand

Might be a bit late here but the people/ culture in KPMG Procurement’s practice are great. And, M1 - Procurement is becoming MORE important and strategic over time.

I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized.

I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true?
