I still appreciate your response. I hope you have a great night

There are projects that are cross-staffed with folks from different practices when there's intersection. For example, a PE case for a medtech target would likely have ppl from the PE group + people from health. A digital strategy project for a telco would have ppl from digital and also CMT, etc. Can also happen where industry groups get staffed together if it makes sense (e.g., a health company making a consumer pay may have people from both health and consumer retail). It's harder to be on a project completely unrelated to your practice since that's supposed to be your priority in staffing, but it's still possible. Just need the partners you want to work to pull you in.

Agree with this! This is probably the best way to get diverse experiences while practice aligned.

It’s possible although I heard there is some friction (ie need to get support from your practice & have a desired opportunity lined up). I also heard about people switching practices with ease but that’s a card you can probably pull once or twice. I’m still a generalist so will let those who are practice aligned comment.

Yes I run an industry practice and people from other industry practice are often on teams in my area and my people often support other when the issues are relevant. The structure of the firm and how it is managed makes this very fluid.

like

The general answer is yes, if you’re talking industry practice + transactions or digital. There might be regional differences, though. Smth like cross-staffing in completely unrelated practices, e.g health and telco or EPI is more unlikely on a regular basis
