The good thing with consulting firms is that he wouldn't really be your boss. Just avoid working with him. Some people are elitist/tribal like that. Yeah, they're judging a stock based on its returns from a decade ago, it's irrational but it's deep rooted. Not everyone is that way though, so don't let one bad apple spoil the bunch.
