I did a Johnson and Johnson rotational and it was the worst waste of my career I’ve ever done. It’s all fluff and politics. You learn nothing and leave feeling less confident in your knowledge then you did after school. Rotation programs are resume builders and that’s it. Consulting is so much better.

Why? PM is a ton of work, responsibility, negotiations, long hours and blame. It's not much more perfect that Consulting, IB or PE.

Folks that exited from Big 4 to MBB: do you regret it? Despite moving to a great firm like McK, having second thoughts about the decision due to the long hours and constant hustle to prove myself again. Don’t see myself staying in consulting forever, and have already been in consulting for 3.5 years. Any advice from folks that have done this? Can’t help but feel I should’ve kept looking for a FAANG exit rather than consulting.
