Does MBB really do extremely impactful strategy work on every project? I feel like I want that more than ever but in the back of my mind I feel like it will ultimately be normal project work

Not everything is super exciting strategy. We do transformations, procurement, org health, the list goes on and on.

Just because it’s not strategy or not the most exciting thing doesn’t mean it’s not impactful though

If you love consulting and love high impact work, then yes you will be excited many days going to work. But there are also bad days, lots of stress, days when you don’t wanna get out of bed. Same as any job

Extremely impactful strategy work on every project? No.

However, take out the word strategy. Downgrade extremely to very and you have a pretty fair statement. Not all work can be strategy or extremely impactful.

In my mind I have build up MBB as a job that I would be happy going to work everyday besides the stress and I want to know if I should stop putting it as the most important thing driving me in my career
