Yeah I went from Roland Berger to a boutique. Much better environment, way friendlier, accelerated promotions and much more responsibility. But not better comp.

I made two job changes after Accenture and I’m making 125% more than I was making at Accenture in just 4 years. If I had stayed at Accenture I probably would’ve made 65% of what I am currently making. Even from a growth and learning perspective it was a decision that catapulted me to heights I never thought were possible to reach.

Comp and perks are better. Benefits are not as comprehensive but depends on your needs. The work is so so for now. I miss some of my larger clients vs mid-market stuff now. My current boss is heads and shoulders above the inept narcissists they were promoting in my last practice. Going boutique is very much a YMMV IMHO.

I made the switch to a boutique and loved it. Switched back because the boutique didn’t have the ability to scale in my area of interest.

Did this in February and overall has been an great change for me after many years at D. Pros: Better comp, less compliance, more flexibility, true WLB, more autonomy, more rewarding. Cons: Caliber of people is less, missing many systems, resources, and processes I am accustomed to having.

I will be graduating this Fall, currently interning for TI as a Product Marketing Engineer; I will most likely accept an offer for their Technical Sales Representative 9month rotation program.

Is it worth it to still apply to other companies this Fall recruiting season? (I want to be in San Francisco and possibly NYC.)
