I'm at a director level, when I moved from M.D. to industry to consulting, the best book that helped me succeed was this one. It's all you need to know as a fresh big 4 consultant. And never feel that you are smarter than other consultants without doctorate degrees. They are incredibly intelligent people who mastered some skills that you will have to learn from them! https://www.amazon.com/First-90-Days-Strategies-Expanded/dp/1422188612
