Lol. Salary was a lateral move. Left at M level, and growth trajectory has slowed for sure, but I make more than I spend and growth is beating inflation. It gets boring for sure, sometimes I work about 20hr in a week. It can be as interesting/ challenging as you make it though. Just yesterday I presented on one project I found pretty engaging and impactful, and another that’s a complete waste of time. You have to be self motivated, though, since financial/career incentives are pretty non-existent.

Just becareful if you exit into a team of ex consultants. Usually everyone's chill, but everyone now and then there is group that holds on to bad things

It's literally night and day difference
