I was kind of nervous to post this anywhere else but - I’m at a B4 and I’ve been mostly doing PMO work. My job before this was a lot of PMO/admin work and I specifically wanted to get away from that. I have nothing against it but it’s something I personally struggle with. Everyone is telling me that consulting is mainly just PMO work. Is this true? If so, what are the next steps I should take?

Not sure about PwC but at my firm you could look specifically for functional or technical roles to get more system or industry specific knowledge

Thanks!

Are your colleagues on your team or at your level doing this same type of work?

They are. They’re also echoing that a lot of the work at PwC is PMO work.

Is it? Yes. But are there other opportunities as well? Yes. You should ask for something else, but first its best to show initiative by building a network in that space and by doing some online training. Then when the opportunity comes, you'll be ready and remembered.

I've been working in management consulting for the last few years (incl working at Big 4).

I feel like I'm not cut out for the MBBs and will never be able to 'crack' the case study interview because I'm just not good /smart enough. Any advice on how best to build the confidence and take myself forward?

Does lateraling to MBB from another firm (ex. T2 / Big 4 / Boutique) impact project opportunities and your “sense of worth” to clients compared direct hires? Or generally no impact, because you went through the same rigorous process + are generally equally as capable.
