This is like college continued - 1. Surrounded by accomplished and smart people who want you to succeed 2. resources to continue learning whatever you find interesting and opportunities to bring your learning to business and people 3. Travel to new places and meet new people everywhere (sometimes good) 4. And get paid a great salary (I know lots of people who get paid way less for way less opportunities than we get) Anyone who says consulting is probably burnt out. But if all you see is negative, always tap into something you find is meaningful to see the bigger picture or the positives in whatever you do - that’s poetry and teaching for me.

For me mostly it’s the team dynamic and the incredibly close relationships we get to build. All of my friends (coworkers) who have left for industry admit they no longer have that. They have coworkers - not friends at work - which is an important distinction. Some people don’t care about making friends with their coworkers but I value it. I’ve built a lot lasting friendships in consulting over the years, with clients as well. Also, a lot of people complain that in consulting we have 10+ bosses at any given time. I actually like that. Between practice leads, industry leads, account leads, career counselors, talent leads... lots of people to build your network with who can really help drive your career. And if you’re having an off week or month or year with some of them, you can cozy up to another one or two and still make it work. Never really tied to a single boss who you either get along with or don’t. You can generally navigate who you report to and distance yourself from those you don’t want anything to do with much easier than you can in other jobs.

A4, no other reason

I get bored easily, so what keeps me going is working on different projects with different teams and different clients. Other than that, the salary. I don’t give two shits about the travel points, if anything, the points are a depressing aspect of this job because it’s a constant reminder as to how much we are away from our homes and families

never change. My experience with managers so far is not encouraging.

Meeting new people. Like someone else said, I get bored easily. I was known in high school and college to switch jobs a lot because I got bored (always left on good terms tho). Working with different people in different places makes you think about the backgrounds those people grew up in. It’s crazy how many different mini cultures each region of the US has.

1. I’m itinerant by nature and have diverse interests - I’d get bored in most other jobs 2. Surrounded by high-quality team mates who require me to up my game 3. I enjoy the craft of consulting; the logic of problem solving, using written, analytical and presentational skills to bring people on a journey 4. I find my subject matter domain purposeful 5. I also value being able to have impact at a strategic level

Well.. being a Manger is tough work

Coaching someone and seeing that person change for the better. I’ve seen so many people grow and accomplish great things and this pride in my co-workers never gets old. Consulting offers great opportunities for people to step up and step into so many different challenging situations, so the learning for all of us really never stops.

Ey3 Of course we know that. I am an international transferee and Eb1. Have I-140 approved. Can’t take the risk of changing the job before GC is in hand. Took years to transfer. Took more years to apply and would probably take more years before PD becomes current. Congrats you have already spent decades in Consulting and now Institutionalized.
