Industry hands out amazing job titles while consulting has basic titles for different milestones. I feel like it's hurting us when we look for exit strategies.

Industry knows about titles....trust me, consulting titles don't hurt your exit ops - everyone in banking is a VP; so the "amazingness" of the title has been downgraded to the point of "everyone is a VP". Type of work you do, how you perform, and honestly your employer's brand have a much greater effect on your opportunities than your title.

Um, no. When you leave consulting you get an amazing title and pay based on consulting levels and pay which are typically higher than for non consultants. The only real caveat to this is that trying to get into a function that does not have many ex consultants can be difficult.

I don't think it's job titles which are hurting you in searching for exit opps...

Employer's brand is really key.

I couldn't care less about titles, as long as the pay is good.

Amazing titles lose their value when they are just handed out. They become worthless. It's what you actually do that matters.
