In terms of exit ops and salary -Strategy Consulting -Management Consulting (not including strategy. Strategy consulting is just one discipline of management consulting) -Data analytics -Audit (with the one caveat if you can make partner, it might pay more than data analytics)

Where does management consulting fit into all of this? Would you say exits for management consulting are similar to audit or strategy?

If you are looking for optionality , go with audit, management consultant, strategy consultant, in that order. There are simply that many more jobs and growth opportunities in audit since much of the work is government mandated thanks to SOX and other laws and regulations. Audit is also the most recession proof of all. However, if you're looking for interesting work, strategy may be the place to go.

GT1 is very misinformed, it isn’t difficult at all to exit from strategy consulting to industry. If those folks struggle, it’s due to being picky on their exit ops or their trying to maximize comp/equity

Take product management for example. Anyone who's never worked for a real product team, only for a consulting firm, would have dealt with so much less variables and ambiguities. In my experience, what hiring managers find most valuable is a mix of industry and consulting experience versus a vanilla consulting one. Happy to read others insights. To be frank, this may not matter one way or other until you get to a senior enough level.
