You will learn more in this role than a lot of movement between clients, whether you want to stay in consulting or move outside.

Whether you are a client service PPED or in management, its a grind. You will get deep in the client, learn their biz in depth, manage long term relationships, politics, and the conflict that comes with transformation. That depth will help you sell with knowledge and trusted relationships.

smart

My situation- great relationship with the client, firm leadership is supportive of change but has not materialized in a change.

Partners - what would it take for you to consider lateraling to another consulting firm? Please consider only incentives the new job would have to offer you, rather than what would have to be wrong at your current firm.

I’m thinking about going from industry , 5 + years experience, to big 4 for higher comp then back to industry at a higher executive level role. Do you think the transition back into the industry (hospital/ acute care setting) from the big 4 would be easy? Does consulting with the big 4 look good enough on a resume to get an executive level role or does staying in the industry make more sense if that’s my long term goal

Thank you
