Not sure if it’s just the project I’m on but I feel like my job/role is to just put out fires and it’s absolutely terrible. Is it the project or is this consulting not general?

Yeah the project is an implementation project 😣

Welcome to Accenture! This is every project. It absolutely sucks and I feel your pain :(

I’ve had good and bad projects. It is very project dependent. Before leaving the firm, see if you can find a better project. It could be a whole lot better!

I’m being promoted to Manager this November but recent got offer from a fintech. In money term the manager base pay is 5k greater than the new role but i’m negotiating to match the offer with my Manager salary. Should I wait until promoted or move asap? I dont want to continue working in external audit so trying to pivot to data analyst role/IA in the fintech before moving to full DA/DS position… but thinking the Manager promotion would help negotiate salary in the future.

Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).

I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
