See a lot of comp posts from consultants - have any of you considered enterprise technology sales? Certainly a different job that requires different knowledge/skills but I see parallels/ think a consultant could do well in sales if they’re okay with a lot of rejection. The pay seems similar (my OTE is about 400k; 8 YoE, individual contributor) but I imagine the hours are better and it can be fun if you like solving customer problems, to challenge customers, and building relationships

Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged.

Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)
