Op heard it at the airport. Op has status. Not a very confusing # imo. That's a really weird thing to complain about lol. That group 3 person obviously owns the world and due to their value should board first.

The consulting services teams of big tech (Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, etc) seem like obvious entry points for consultants due to relevant experience, but they get little attention here. Why is that? Do those roles lack good pay, advancement opportunities or better WLB vs working for a consultancy? Do they have the same focus on firm initiatives, utilization and BD/sales as consulting firms?
