If I am in “tech consulting” but only take on ERP implementations or PMO type projects, do I have the same exit opportunities as traditional management/strategy consultants? Am I regarded the same in terms of “prestige” as well?

No, it’s not the same kind of exit opportunities. Your choices would be narrower but still good. Traditional management consultants would have broader choices.

Honestly you’re stuck in consulting or you’ll have to exit to “internal consulting” roles where you do implementation initiative work.

Lol that’s just incorrect

You’re not the same but that’s okay - you’re special in your own way

How do you explain to you SO the role of billable hours? I feel like a broken record talking about how BIg law and in general the legal profession is very different, but my SO doesn’t seem to get the stress. Loves my paycheck for sure, but doesn’t get that to move up in our profession that you have to put the “time” in and that some of that isn’t just the 1900 requirement. It’s getting very frustrating.
