Most now work on army, blue cross or USAA. Nothing portfolio worthy. All good work goes to Calgary or NY. Culture very bro-y. Work/life balance is good, however.

Hey hive mind! A headhunter reached to me about VP/SVP/Director opportunities at AlixPartners in EI or Cyber. A previous BAH executive referred him to me as a candidate. I’ve been in advisory and consulting for 10 yrs, am a Sr Mgr/Mgr type now, no MBA, have certs in cyber and management. AP seems great. I like cyber well enough but am not married to it. Two questions: 1) Thoughts on AP business and culture, and 2) Thoughts on which AP level I would be aligned to? Thank you!!

Consultant vs specialist track - I’m considering jumping to the specialist track since I enjoy the technical work much more. However, it seems like it’s perceived as a step back. But what are the tangible differences? Lower pay and benefits? I’ve asked my cc but she doesn’t seem to have much to offer. Also, is the culture different? ….I really dislike working with hyper competitive people, most in consulting are great to work with, but there seems to be a solid 30% that are bad humans

No Google forms.
