Does loyalty to a particular firm matter or should one keep switching every 2-3 years to maximize ctc? Will ctc increase by the same amount if you stay long term in a firm? From a big 4 perspective, will loyalty and number of years at the firm matter to make partner?

To make partner, what matters is the ability to bring business. Loads. Big or small, but consistently. To do that networking is absolutely critical. Staying in the same firm sort of limits your ability to network very actively, after a while, as you get used to certain things. Therefore moving back between Consulting & Industry, or within consulting, helps you get exposure to new solutions, new contacts etc. All this richly adds to your profile. These are attractive traits to have if being considered for Partnership is important to you. At the end of the day, building business book, requires extensive relationship management, exposure to innovative offerings & to think out of the box. These are best acquired if you have different experiences, at different firms ( so long as these experiences add to your skills, perspective & network base). Hope this helps.
