I heard about innovation consulting recently and thought it sounded interesting. What firms are good for this and is it a viable field? I have some strategy and Design thinking experience.

Look up BCG Digital Ventures. Seems like the kind of company you’d be interested in—a quick search of competitor should give a longer list to apply to

Check out ideo

Ideo would probably be a pay cut. Getting closer to Fjord would be your easiest option, without changing companies entirely.

BCG DV is more entrepreneurial, less of a “design thinking” / HCD process like Doblin or Ideo. But also easier to get into if you don’t have a design degree or significant experience.

like

BCG DV sounds the most up my alley given my background. Do they ever take people on the more junior side/ have any qualifications they look for?

Another thing to add—the pay at a lot of these firms is shit and they put you on a 1Y probationary period at many of them where you aren’t staffed on projects. They hire you FT only if you “prove” yourself.

Will MBB name get me a better PM job in tech ($, name etc)I don’t have any technical/coding background, but ultimately want to work in tech.
