Got offer from BCG for ECT. Read numerous comments about ECT being not attractive compared to Generalist track. Also heard challenges about billability/utilization. Any views/ guidance appreciated!
I am not super keen to become a partner (selling) and main reason to join will be working with different clients, smart talented people and a good brand. End goal (at the moment atleast) is to stay for few years and return to the industry. 15 YOE

Congratulations for the offer. In my understanding, if you don't want to sell, ECT can be great. You can actually build a personal brand, be sought after without having to think about sales. Needless to say, a strong internal network helps you to build that brand and maintain your billability

I may want to stay in consulting long-term, but also open to switching to tech at some point. Is there a strong reason to switch to MBB now, or does it make sense to work in my current firm for 2 years and then make lateral move to MBB at a more senior level?
