Good on you for asking the question. IT will be quite different from strategy. I don’t work for either firm so don’t want to overstate, though

How'd you make that happen? If you were recruited for S&A I have bad news for you - you'll probably be doing implementation Pure Strategy is exceedingly rare at Deloitte Former monitor folks making up majority of the practice leadership

In these times, why go from tech to strategy? Even McKinsey wants to do tech.

For those back in office are y’all just wearing masks indoors and is it affecting the way you work? I’m pro-vaccine and masks indoors when crowded. But can’t help think it being uncomfortable having the mask on working 8+ hours and taking client calls when you could have it off working at home 🏠

Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
