Consulting

Inspired by another post but are SMs priced out of industry roles? I’m SM making $260k but without a deep industry expertise. Can’t see many places offering this salary unless for a VP or specialist.

But if you have it in you to make Partner - it’s much more easy to find a VP job in industry

Yeah it’s very tough if you are not a SME to pull in >200k in industry.

This is why it's usually best to depart between SC and M levels. You'll be able to grow in an industry. That being said it won't be impossible to find a new place. It will just take more time but the money is out there.

Can you do it on technical expertise without the industry expertise?

Absolutely yes ! But what industry calls technical skills is at significantly deeper levels than what is found in consulting

It’s Big4 consulting. We interview people and make decks for a living. Not many industry roles are going to be paying >200 for that skill

Knowing the fact that there are minimal chances of a raise, it is so demotivating to work whole heartedly. How does everyone keep up with the work? I feel I have lost the enthusiasm. Well salary is one factor but I am also finding other reasons. May be the monotony is killing us.
