Making Work More Human - A Q&A with ex-KPMG Partners 11/6

I specialize in a niche. I find that this niche has large ebbs and flows within consulting firms, and because of that I feel highly expendable. How do I create stability at an org in this environment?

It should be possible to deliver niche work and general purpose work. I'm experienced in M&A and higher education, but also work across the firm on assignments in other sectors. Deloitte must surely give scope for that?

Do the ebbs and flows still net to a decent revenue stream? If yes then ok and sounds like an opportunity to work differently and flexibly so when your area is running hot then you are ready for it.

For benchmarking I think it’d be helpful for all on here to see starting comp. (undergrad or MBA) at top consulting firms: Firm: Base salary: Total possible per. bonus: Profit share: 401K:

Has anyone moved from a regional firm to Big 4 as manager? Considering making the switch in the fall and curious as to what the hardest part of the change will be, aside from the hours.

I have been in IA consulting for 4 years but I feel very lost in my career because it’s just not the kind of work I enjoy at all. Do I go for IA in industry? And entirely new field? My morale since covid has been so low and it’s difficult to think these things through sometimes.

What do you do when small local firms won’t give your resume the time of day, but everyone you ask for resume feedback on says your materials are fine? These aren’t big law or boutiques, we’re talking probably paying $20-30 an hour part time as an associate with firms of 1-3 attorneys generally. I know biglaw is recovering from COVID but has it really hurt small law so badly getting an interview is next to impossible? Any and every practice area. Work is work. Approx. 500k local population size.
