Went to BCG and came back. Couldn’t deal. Work life balance and all wasn’t the issue. I just can’t deal with all these people that were nerds all their lives that suddenly think they’re the shit and above everyone else. Definitely plenty of great people too though I guess that’s consulting in general. I guess I also wanted to focus more on tech. No MBA for me. Just grinding and drinking with the right people.

Damn at ACN 2, I’d love to learn more about how you did it without an MBA. Do referrals really carry that much weight? Also how to get in the loop....so many questions!

I have a massive personal network. I’ve always been very social but at the same time have been a heads down and just do your work type of person. Knew a guy that ended up becoming Partner. Dude is a no BS type of guy. Chill but extremely intelligent. He sees through all the brown nosers. After some casual convos I was like whatever I’ll give it a shot. I was a PL. SM now at ACN.

And did you go pre or post MBA

ACN2 – which level? Interesting take on the culture. I hope it was a good learning experience nonetheless

Yea would like to hear more, caught up with a family friend last weekend who is partner at one of the Bs. Want to make the move before MBA but wondering how hard it is and how much he could “pull” me in

Can we connect @A2 - you seem like a good coach/mentor. Would love to maybe be part of one of your teams/projects in future at ACN

I work at a small CRM company in SaaS sales. It’s a small 35 ish employee company with a family-like culture.Been here for 7 years and usually make about 125k gross/year. I work remote, travel the world for free few times/year attending conferences, and just try to sell as much as I can. No stress, no quotas and what you would probably consider a “kushy” sales job. I feel like I could easily be making double at a salesforce and could land the job fairly easily with my experience. Worth the leap?
