Is it worth a switch now? The interview prep, change in network etc? I feel like work will be more interesting and trajectory to any potential careers outside consulting would be much better

MC in tech implementation means a PMO role with lotta slides?

Basically that plus own the client relationship with the business, make decisions and recommendations on process and org impacts from the tech implantation, interpret what tech says and put it into plain English for business and vice versa, plus get into the details on the tech side when needed.

If you're a Senior Manager now, you'll have to prepare yourself for a big step down if you lateral. Not even sure it'll be that easy to lateral to MBB if you're in MC as opposed to whatever the respective Strategy group is at your B4. Maybe you could lateral to one of the MBB implementation arms...

Not afraid of a step down in responsibilities if comp is comparable. Agree that it seems lateral to generalist associate role would be difficult. Not interested in implementation at a different company. Already have that network and brand here so it doesn’t seem like there’s much to gain with that kind of move.

You know what guys, I’m just gonna say it. Big 4 Accounting firms are a damn joke.

They don’t give a damn about you. You want me to do the work of two people? Great. Pay me for the work of two people. This is not a damn charity. Make no mistake folks, they can afford it.
