It’s actually very common for individual with 7 YOE to transition into consulting in Capital projects. I would definitely say it’s worth it. Most of the Advisory practices in Capital Projects like too see industry experience in a candidate. Feel free to reach out, I was in a similar boat a little while back.

I saw this comment and wanted to reach out to you. I am in a similar boat looking for a mid career switch to capital projects and would love to hear your thoughts on what skills are desired and learn from your exp. I cannot DM, unfortunately, since I am new to the bowl. Can we chat in this comment thread?

Won't need an MBA if good experience, but as an experienced hire, trust me when I say it looks a lot shinier from the outside. If I had my time again I wouldn't bother.

It also depends on your alternatives. For me it was definitely worthwhile. I would say this company has afforded me an amazing opportunity to pivot from public sector/life-sciences to a number of roles. I think I would’ve ended up a GS in DC otherwise

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?
