You need to network with ex consultants and not worry about recruiters. Internal company recruiters are mostly morons. Try not to speak to recruiters until after the team has already decided they want you and then you’re just doing formalities. Seriously, who would want to be an internal recruiter? You don’t get paid well, are held to very high standards for volume instead of quality, and you aren’t respected in the company. You get what you pay for.

You’ll rarely find an industry job that will pay you more than your consulting salary. And even if they do initially the long term pay progression is much less than consulting. That’s why FAANG is so desirable. It is one of the industry jobs that does pay more.

The industries I’ve worked in you make considerably less than consulting while still having a similar WLB. I also don’t see many people come from consulting into the industries I’ve been in.

It may help if you can hit manager that way in industry you could potentially be a people manager and claim a bit more $.

So get an automatic 3% contribution to 401K.
