Oddly specific there.

If you do regret it you should be able to boomerang as long as you have a good performance history at your firm.

Maybe yes, maybe no, maybe undecided.

Haha OP are you asking for a friend 😂

I made the switch 3 years ago to CG and enjoying it..happy to talk if you have any specific challenges

I'm in consulting and doing very well. I'm pretty much cruising doing 9:00-18:00, and with a prospect of making MD in the next 2 years. I got approached by consumer goods company that offers a 40% pay increase. Being risk adverse, want to hear stories of people who have made the move.

Been with Deloitte for about a year as a consultant and currently interviewing for a Business Integrity role at Meta. From what I understand, the business integrity role is an internal consulting role for them. I’d like to not have billable hours anymore and more of a WLB but not sure if there any key differences between the two besides that. There is a pay increase but not really concerned about that. Any thoughts on this transition if I am offered?

In need of some advice. I recently quit my consulting job for a new role. During the interview process, I was told by multiple people that this was a mix between strategy and finance, with more work on the strategy side. However, i just started the actual role and on the first day, my manager has left the team as he disagrees with the vision of the team going forward. I found out what this means is that my role is actually a FP&A role, with strategy as a “nice to have” but no longer needed(cont)

A headhunter reached out with a very generic job description for data and analytics practice. Like really only 3 sentences. No particulars at all. As a starting point we both aligned on approx 30% increase of TC from where I am now. Having gone through the interview process, it's consulting gig+pre sales and business dev and not just delivery and implementation. I feel I should ask for more(40% increase instead of 30). What's the best way to position this?
