I see job posts from consulting firms looking for senior analysts/associates and the requirements are calling for 1-3 years of investment banking experience. Specific example: guidehouse has a “financial analyst - senior consultant” position available on LinkedIn calling for 1-3 years IB. This has got to be a dream requirement right? Do IB analysts making $150k+ really leave to make half? Just seems like these positions would never get filled to me

It is mostly a dream requirement. Also, there are tiers within banking too. Nobody who is killing it at Goldman Sachs is applying to that Guidehouse post, but someone laid off from BMO might.

Risks of layoff in IB can be up to 50% depending on your cohort and experience and deal flow, so on an expected value basis it works out. Consulting also opens up more career opportunities.
