Tech companies are mostly built up of 22ish-40ish year olds (not data, just how it feels) which makes sense as tech has been booming for only 20ish years. What happens in the next 10-20 years when the ones who are older for tech now, become actually old for the workforce. Do we get phased out by young people due to lack of relevancy? Or will we have 50-60 year old SAAS sales people, project managers, etc, still in the space and about to retire?

I already work with 50-60 year old SaaS salespeople people and they’re all really good at their jobs. I think most of my high achieving peers are going to be running the place (positions currently held by 50-60 year olds) in the future. Just because they are getting older doesn’t mean they’re becoming irrelevant

Advice for someone 3-5 yrs into consulting, who loves the client element and the type of work... but is starting to feel slowdown in growth and not interested in subject area? I feel like the firm doesn’t value me (rated above avg. but not too), not earning as much as classmates now in other firms that are doing ok, and my mentor leaders want to pull me deeper into the work they do... do I just go with it, do I switch firms, do I try something different?

Are Deloitte and Deloitte Consulting completely different companies? And if so, does that mean that Deloitte Consulting can provide consulting services to a Deloitte audit client? If that's the case, then why did they reportedly consider copying EY's upcoming split. It seems like they already did that split log ago and somehow keep the same name essentially for both companies. If anything, is EY copying Deloitte here? What's the difference?
