Hey Guidehouse 🐠🐟🐡. Started a while ago as a Consultant and realize that 99% of my day is taking and sending meeting minutes. Feel like I’m not really learning or developing many new skills. Is this common for consultants across GH projects?

Very common. It’s part and parcel of management consultancy, not unique to Guidehouse. First year you’ll be taking meeting minutes (there’s a certain way to do it), doing research, sitting in on interviews, reviewing literature, making Excel databases, maybe working on some slides. It’s the first building block of a consulting career and how all of us start out.

I was on a call with 6 Partners last week, and as the most junior person on the call, guess who had to take notes?…

Yes, what I’m saying though is that I don’t get all of those other parts. I don’t review literature, I don’t make databases, I don’t do research.

I recently (1+ yr ago) transitioned from consulting to industry. The hours are much better. Total comp is less than what I was making on the consulting side (-15% less). My schedule is much better, and I have a good routine outside of work. However, I don't feel accomplished at my current role and feel like I am not learning as much. I was hoping that I would make up for that comp difference in a year or two but upward mobility seems limited. Is it too soon to look for another job?
