How bad is it to reach out to your client for a job opportunity?

It's very normal for clients to hire former consultants. In fact it's usually better for them, because they have previous exposure to your work and they know they can trust the references that come for your consulting leaders since they too have worked with them. But there are likely sensitivities around how you pursue the opportunity, and at some point you will likely need to tell the consulting leaders who own the client relationship.

Also interested. Why not?

I’m wondering as well. My Client is a FAANG...

Can’t you just ask vaguely?

Eg. How often do positions come open in your group? Any new hiring plans in the near future? What do you look for in a hire?

-> plausible deniability

Thank you 🥺♥️

My male boss takes the easy way out and re-uses “strategies” over and over, or he takes my work for one account and shoddily uses it for another. He gets frustrated with me when I point this out or question how he’s approaching a client problem. Others in the agency now come to me because they don’t like working with him. I don’t want to work for him anymore, but I also don’t think I want to leave the agency. I do get a lot of autonomy but seeing his output compared to mine is so frustrating.
