Does consulting gives better compensation than tech and corporate? Right from undergrad, you can make partner in consulting a bit later than 30, even at principal level, you can make enormous amount of money while in tech (business roles) and corproate strategy (or business units) it is extremely hard to get even close.  e.g. principals in general makes much more than a director/senior director and even VPs+ while the former is way younger Is not taking consulting a mistake (post-MBA)? @mckinsey
