C1, what firm are you at right now?

We don’t do HR strategy - we do organization strategy, oftentimes having nothing to do with HR

I’m really confused why you’re fighting with me but whatever, all I said is we don’t do HR strategy, which we don’t.

Strategy consulting firms don’t do HR strategy work. Your best bet is to go for an HR role in FAANG, but those are hyper competitive as you will be competing with Fortune 500 HR executives with years of experience.

What don’t you like about change management? Just wondering because I’m searching for roles in that field

It’s tedious, annoying, and boring. I’m considered a training SME at my firm, which means I get staffed on projects that all have 80+ work weeks non stop for full implementations. I don’t mind long hours, but it gets to you when it’s just churning out content non stop. Comms isn’t much better.

We are all top performers now, aren't we.

Objectively I have the highest performance ratings in my practice. That is a top performer.

Define ‘HR Strategy’. Depending on what you’re looking for, I would reach out directly to the people who are in the practice areas you are looking for, whether they are in Deloitte, PWC, etc. If you are serious about MBB, you’re best shot is a top-tier MBA. In terms of strategy& and OW, I would recommend reducing out to current consultants on LinkedIn.

Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?
