What is the Southern California consulting landscape? Seems like the majority of companies with operations there have project work elsewhere.

Entertainment and utilities for us. I was based out of the LA office for 2 years and could never get staffed locally (I lived in Venice and wanted to explore CA). Chicken & egg problem with supply/demand.

I live in LA and I do not get local projects here, some media and entertainment, some colleges (cyber, org), there are a lot of companies and work in OC however. You don't really want local projects in LA, 3hrs a day of driving is pretty shitty.

Media, healthcare, insurance and some govt work. I am not part of either alignments so I have usually traveled but finally got an ops project here

I love living here so it's all worth it

We have a big office there - several biotechs and random smaller clients.

Not much for me in SoCal (pharma, but for decently developed companies), but my team is usually great about minimizing travel.

ACN2. What kind of insurance?

PWC2 what do you mean? Insurance companies like farmers etc. also unrelated to insurance some fixed income clients are here too

Heath insurance, life insurance, P&C. I'm in FS Insurance. And i would like to move to CA. But I haven't seen many projects down the pipeline in CA. So curious why you said insurance was a big industry out there?

Farmers is the only one I can think of based out that way (major insurer that is)

I know of couple more clients personally but I am not aligned to insurance but know that most FS practitioners here are insurance

Not health as that wouldn't be FS

Good to know. I'll need to have a chat with my demand manager

Thanks!

No prob! Definitely awesome place to live at :)

I’ve been on the bench with J1 for about 3 months. I was worried that because I couldn’t find another project, I would get laid off so I found J2, which pays more, is very meeting heavy, but I really like. I’ve kept J1 because I’m still on the bench doing absolutely nothing and getting paid. Thinking about looking for a role on a project with J1 that’s not along my career path but will allow for me to do work with no calls so that I can manage both jobs. Does anyone have experience or advice?

Any thoughts on an MBA vs MS Project Management. I was planning on doing an MBA but and MS Project Management seems like the better option now. I will be an international student and was planning on making a career shift into project management itself. I thought MBA would give me the best chance but I came across some good MS Project Management degrees. Also, I already hold a MS but in another field. Any thoughts?
