Why looking at management consulting companies to pursue career in big tech cutting edge? The plan seems flawed.

Don’t join OMNIA

What’s is the position your looking for? I can honestly say that although OMNIA is expanding. You will be frustrated with the lack of leadership and innovation from the group. Most of the products are not matured and there is almost no investment to improve them. Some of the good things about joining OMNIA is that most of the people that work there are hard workers and passionate about their roles. If you have a remote manager you will encounter a lot of communication issues (Many amazing people left because of that). Like any other role a good manager will determine if you have a good or a bad future in BCG. My advice to you will be also to get clarity in wether or not you will have promotion opportunities.Countless good people left because they were not going to be promoted as there is no investment for the group. Finally, the interview process depends of the position. In your case is very likely that they will go over some of your accomplishments and go over make-up case study to test your tech/ problem solving capabilities. Make sure to understand what are the practice areas that BCG covers. For Omni you have 3 important groups Software, Data and Practice areas. Hoped this helps.

Thanks. It does.

Maybe someone out there in the Omnia world has a more constructive answer for OP?

for the most folks here expressing their frustration, what region are you based out of? Wondering if that plays a role too?

Non-accounting rant…Our lease is up at the end of April and we recently got our new lease contract. All of a sudden, the leasing company is requiring renter’s insurance. It’s apparently a new requirement for all new and current residents. It’s definitely a good thing to have, but isn’t there some sort of requirement for landlords to communicate big changes to leases in advance and not just stick it on the lease and hope everyone reads it? It seems kinda predatory and sneaky.

I've become really jaded about consulting.

I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this. Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?
