ERP PMO is very different and far less valuable than actual implementation (System Integrator) experience. Great SIs do some of the most truly strategic work in consulting; their work has immediate impact and can completely redefine operating models. Since you’re already close, try to make that switch first, then your story to move into pure play strategy will be a lot more convincing. Fair warning though, there’s a ton of bad SI’s out there, and it is an absolute grind to get good. Good former SIs that make their way into Strategy/M&A/Digital will sniff it out very quickly if you don’t know your stuff and are just playing up your implementation experience.

Just pivoted from SAP implementation to more strategy-focused consulting work (2.5 YOE) at a T2 firm. Happy to chat about my experience

6 months in - have you gone through a full deployment yet? PMO is different than the technical deployment role. What is the story you would share in a first round interview to indicate how you are ready for a corporate strategy role?

Hey guys, I just found this group and I’m hoping for some guidance/advice! I’m hoping to get into one of the Big 4s or MBB and finally got a few referrals once joining FB. I am 29, have an MA in IOP, and 10 YEO. I have never worked for a non-Jewish company (despite trying pretty damn hard to get out) and I’m freaking out. I have no concept of normal professionalism, strategy for navigating the workplace and the real world in corporate USA,(cont. in comment)

I'm conflicted and I honestly feel defeated. I started this job at a good foot, I negotiated the salary I wanted, which was of the higher tier. I killed it by being in the top 6 performers of my sales class. A year into the job, I get my first promotion by hitting my numbers. Felt proud of myself for a moment. Then I get an email saying I'll still get the promotion. But due to my higher starting salary (5k over the average) I won't get the pay raise of 3k. Is this right? "Here's your pizza!"
