Thinking about exiting to industry 2 years after joining consulting out of undergrad. I think people mostly work in Corporate Strategy (internal consulting groups).
But are there ways to work on the strategy side, but more aligned to products or a specific business unit?
Don’t know if this even exists as I’m early in my search and very much confused

Like Product management ?

Look into the Facebook RPM role. It’s one of the few ways to break into PM without a technical background. Mostly targeting college grads & recent grads (1-4 YOE) It’s super competitive but doesn’t hurt to try.

Business unit strategy roles certainly exist - primarily strategy roles for divisions/subsidiaries of large firms.

The strategy roles there do also tend to have more exposure to product since your scope is narrower than it would be for the parent.

Are there any advantages to aligning yourself to a business unit or product? Not sure if early in my career I should still keep my job scope wide

I'm not in sales per se but I manage my company's largest wholesale account ($150 million per/yr account). It's a great company, awesome culture, good benefits, flexibility, but the pay is not great ($60K/yr). All the pros outweighed the mediocre pay, but now with inflation rising, my paycheck isn't going as far and I'm having a really hard time trying to figure out if I should start looking elsewhere or if I should ask my boss for a raise.
