I am a strategy consulting enthusiast from a middle class family. Don't have the financial stability to take a loan for an MBA and hence had to drop some renouned admits this year ( Think top IIM's) due to family circumstances. I still dream big and request you to provide some insights for my research:-
1) Average expected package of an associate
2) Average experience expected at ZS to get hired at associate level
3) Good books to upskill and ace the consulting case interviews
I am moving from industry to consulting and have an interview in early January with one of the big three strategy consulting firms. Any tips on case interview preparation? Reading couple books
There are very few good books on consulting and IT services that I have seen . What should such a book cover for it to be useful to a large number of consultants ? Specific topics like how to grow a career , how to develop business etc OR a general purpose overview from all angles ?
Any good books/learning materials on how consulting/non-product firms acquire other firms? Struggling to find relevant info. “Talent-based acquisitions” seem to be all about hr/recruiting. What are alternative keywords I should use?
Any really impactful books that have helped you career-wise? Not necessarily consulting focused. In need of guidance and a new book so figured I'd kill two birds with one stone or whatever.
New to Strategy Consulting in FS, any recommendations for success? Game plan, Mindset, Books, etc?
What books would you recommend for understanding human psychology / personalities? In a people oriented industry like consulting, I imagine it really helps understanding human behavior and building self awareness. For context, young person in consulting here.

MS folk - Does the firm offer any services for GMAT prep/ business school? I.e. reimbursement for books, consulting services etc
26 yrs old, been in consulting since finishing undergrad. Worried that I haven't narrowed my focus or found a niche to be specifically great at. Every project has been completely different... And I am constantly reading books to get smart on every other topic. My guess is this is all too common in consulting.
I am curious if this is feasible for a longterm career in consulting, especially if I am trying to continue climbing?
Anyone have recommendations for websites with academic/research reports to read or listen to (excluding consulting reports)? I read a lot of books but want to get into more technical stuff with less fluff
Starting new SC M&A role after 3 YOE in ERP and tech consulting. I have 3 weeks to learn as much as I can so I don’t sound like an idiot on my first day. I bought some books, how would you prep?
I got reached out to about a VC role, but I had never considered VC before. I do Product Management Consulting, but I do have both an undergrad business education and product design experience.
What books / articles / sources do you reccommend if I want to learn more about VC?
If you have worked in VC, what thoughts or advice would you want to share?
Thanks for any info or advice you can share!

I interviewed for a full-time role (remote) but it was later revealed it would require relocation. I am not wanting to do that and they said I could come on as a contractor.

I want to get as high as possible but also don’t want to settle for less than what I have to. For context, I am at 165k right now and the role would have been a pay cut to 135k (full-time).

I think you’re confusing market size with addressable market. Market size is the total spend for a product or service which doesn’t change with competitive dynamics, only macroeconomic factors or industry shifts. Addressable market is affected by competitive dynamics, and you’ll build in assumptions to address things like existing competitive strength, wallet share, etc.
