Just finished my first year in Big 4 Tech Consulting. Got highest possible marks and am starting to get frustrated by lackluster learning opportunities (still have not met a soul that I work with in person) and the allure of consulting is completely dead for me at this point. I know the job market at Tech companies is hot right now… but I feel I may be a bit too early to jump ship. Should I wait until the first big promotion / increase for leverage, or is Big Tech actually hiring 1 YoE Analysts?

You may never get a better chance than now with how hot the market is…leaving consulting isn’t always easy…start applying, if you find something take it and don’t look back

I left for tech after a year at Big4. Didn’t get a massive bump since it was basically a new grad role but I got promoted early just a year later so it ended up working out. Work was much more enjoyable and opportunities have been much better with new title and brand name.

This is nearly exactly what I was wondering. Thanks for the thoughts!

Leave. Im a chronic job hopper. I do not stick around when I start feeling like this.

Always try, you can apply again later. As SC1 said, market is super hot.

I'm so fed up with the casual sexism of my mom.

When I pointed out that she compared my sister only to my brothers, I earn more than them, and both my sister and I are at top firms in our fields, she said, "...mm". Later she said how happy I am when I'm not working and I should quit to raise kids (no kids yet)
