Go work for a government agency. Plenty of data jobs at DOL, CDC, NIH, etc.

likehelpful

JA1, depends on what agency/department. The federal government is huge and they all run by they’re own rules. For example, Dept of State does random screening for their employees. On the other hand, I don’t think the SEC does. Also, this is just if you want to be a direct employee of the government. If you want to be a government contractor or just do government consulting, I’ve never heard of anyone getting tested. (Again, depends who you are a contractor for - if you’re a contractor for the FBI, CIA, or DEA, things might be different. )

I still say get into technical project work. I work like 20 hours a week and hang out all day and get paid more than I should

How do I get into these roles from strategy consulting? Do I need to go back to school?

I feel ya.

A bank

What exactly is the work like at a bank? Do you need PE background?

Those jobs are moved to India or Philippines. Start by applying for immigration to those countries

Following because likewise

When I pay off my house in 5 years I def plan on doing this also.

Why

Come to Federal consulting!

Is that 9-5?

Anything outside consulting could be 9 to 5 for the most part. No Friday evening decks for Monday morning meetings.

Depends on how u define stress, wlb and what level u are in. Its not a give expectation to be on client service mode, all thru the week. Sometimes there is genuinely work spill over that needs to be picked up during the weekend. That all happens everywhere. You can be super efficient as an individual contributor and be on top of ur stuff to avoid that. That's what my tech friends say.
