Is the Associate Director (Strategy) role worth the jump (large pharma company / good brand)? 4.5 YoE at life sciences firm. Salary would go up but just sense checking if it’s a good career move. Realize this may be a common Q so apologies in advance / feel free to direct me to an appropriate thread !!

How far are you from Partner?

Technically yes, you could. But advancement on the industry side is not as consistent or predictable as consulting. I've seen people stay at M / AD for many years because positions don't open. I'd rather wait and exit at D.

I would not move until its Director

Asosictae director role generally gets outsourced to consulting firm...

You can probably get a director position, assuming your 4.5 YOE is post MBA. A colleague just left Deloitte as an EM with 4 YOE post MBA to be a Director in Pharma

What is the compensation like?

Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?

Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles? Consultants generally like my "Context> result> personal contribution" format of bullets
