Something isn’t quite adding up for me, though I haven’t been in consulting long so it may be my ignorance. People say MBB has great exit opps, but none of the “sexy” ones thrown around (e.g., PE, PM) directly translate from consulting, and the those that do (internal consulting / corp strat) aren’t met with much enthusiasm. What am I missing?
