I think it’s a very good role with good pay and amazing WLB. From an impact standpoint, I’m a bit skeptical as to how much BVS does to be honest. I’m a Solution Engineer and typically engage and guide BVS folks on my team for deals. The problem in pre sales and that a lot of numbers guiding BVS are fluffy, leading to fluffy or biased recommendations. Ultimately what wins deals are AE relationships or the technical demo.

Frankly, if I’m coming from McKinsey, I’d aim for Sales Strategy, Product Marketing, kind of roles in tech. Much higher impact.

Last I heard, not that great of wlb in the group :(

Not good. You would be a tool for software sales teams. Not a great career path.

Director role isn’t a bad one. You lead a team but your team is the tool as P1 put it. Unless you’re really a principle on that team which is a director level, then you’re the worker bee doing a ton of data crunching and deck building. I’m really good friends with the guy who runs the whole org, if you’d like to chat with him, dm me

Hey peeps,

Received an offer to join industry in London and would love to hear your thoughts.

Was at McK for 2 years in Germany (just promoted to Associate, 2 years to EM).

Offer is for a retailer (think clothing). GBP 100k base, GBP 125k TC. Role would be in the strategy department. No team leadership role (drawback vs. EM'ing at McK).

Any thoughts/ experiences on:
- moving from DE to London coming from consulting into industry?
- is the offer good? QoL with 100k in London?

Thanks!
