Go. Jump ship. Your job will be secure-ish.

What do you mean when you say secure-ish

Just be careful jumping in the current climate. Nothing is stable unfortunately due to COVID.

Agreed. The greater risk here is that they do it in-house ve going to consultants. Consultants will get canned ASAP.

I am going to get a better pay there than what I am getting her

If thinking about security, likely in house position is better in recession than consulting. But it’s more about what you want to do long term and what kind of industry you want to be in. Do you want to be in consulting, in insurance industry, in security for related Fortune 500? Make your decision based on trajectory you want - not money or promotions

Are there PhDs here who transitioned to consulting at MBB, EY-P, Altman Solon etc. I am a PhD candidate ( Earth Sciences) at UIUC and have begun seriously considering a career in consulting. I am looking for advice and/or mentorship on: 1. Crafting a consulting resume and cover letter 2. Networking as an advanced degree, how important it is? While I am in touch with some consultants from my academic background, I haven’t looked at the relationship as a potential referral as of yet.
