Where the hell do we apply after 3 years as tech consultants at a big 4? I feel overqualified for a senior analyst position in the industry, but often times under-qualified for the manager level.

@KPMG I've considered that, but I realized an MBA is not the solution to everything. Plus I have a coworker who got an MBA at Wharton, came back to Deloitte and is currently doing analyst level work as a Senior Consultant.

Hate the lack of stability of any form. One day you're a rockstar working with the best team and client and the next you're rolling off, getting shipped to a town where you can't even find a restaurant to grab a nice dinner, with a shitty team and doing the work of an intern. No one guarantees that you'll be on a good project if you are a good performer. Also, no work life balance. Constantly being sick while traveling. And they don't pay us that well to begin with...
