What are your thoughts on moving from analytics consulting (incentive compensation, forecasting) to strategy consulting? I recently made the same move and am wondering if I made the right choice?

Generally Strategy comes at the top of pyramid. What have you experienced negative about Strategy so far to sow doubts in your mind?

Couldn’t agree more with EM1. Also went from analytics to strategy. You basically go from being driven to being the driver of the car. In industry, analytics is helpful but it basically turns into 1 of 2 things (I’m going to oversimplify). 1. A factory to continuously answer a bunch of questions for marketing, sales and/or ops. 2. Searching for small insights or ways to improve the business on a never ending basis. Either way it eventually turns into a grind, unless you truly enjoy getting better at coding, optimizing models and so forth.

How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
