Not sure I understand the question, but I work in development. Are you considering a specific job right now?

I’m considering a pivoting to an international development firm like DAI or Dalberg in a project analyst role but I know a lot of these firms require relevant experience, so I was wondering if an internal transfer within Deloitte to GPS would provide the experience part

Anyone else who feels that they want to step into the more analytical/executive/operational/financial side of business?

I feel that as a corporate lawyer, you’re mostly doing the necessary details to carry out someone else’s decisions (= EG the boring part of business). The most "strategic" advice you give is perhaps advising on a choice between transaction models.

Would only a law degree and big law transactional experience be sufficient to go into more traditional business roles?

Anyone ever leave for a chiller role then regret it? I did three years in Consulting then went to PE.

I’ve been back in Consulting for a while now, and am enjoying being back, but I can’t shake this feeling I’m wasting my potential. Like because I’m no longer reaching for the highest rung on the ladder (PE), I’m selling myself short professionally. Any advice?
