Why do you think everything is so busy right now? We’re pretty much sold out worldwide and my friends at McK say the same. What would cause such a large spike in business? People prepping for post-COVID?

From what I’ve heard the reason a lot of offices are “sold out” (at Bain at least) is because our capacity is lower than usual - between childcare issues, people W covid or ongoing effects of covid, mental health worsening over the last year

like

This seems unlikely. You’d have to believe that your capacity has dropped something like 10- 20%. Are you saying that 1/10 - 1/5 of your peers is currently not working and you haven’t tried to backfill with hiring?

D1 I assume principal you are meaning pre partner, AP at McK. In tech they are plentiful at FAANG across product management and Ops mostly L6/7 roles. Industry I’ve seen everything from Sr Director of Ops to VP of Margin and of course a ton of Head of Strategy roles. I don’t know anyone who has struggled to find a AP/principal level exit. Most are selecting between 2-5 things to find what is right for them. Post partner gets a lot more difficult comp wise to match. Ive seen several SVP or CxO roles at smaller companies where the person knows the industry.

True, very true I was at a B4 with solid delivery experience. Now I a D, but the climb in the industry from D to VP is 15 years and the pay is not that great also I don’t care for work/life...I also only have 5 more years before I hit 40 and die ..hence thinking to make a play for it

I exited from consulting to Industry (it is tough to get exit options into industry), I love consulting I now have an exit into MBB - I am thinking is this consulting environment hype/long lasting to come back as a Partner or should I stay in industry because it is more stable

Can anyone share stories of post principal exit opportunities at MBB....or even partner exits

Got covid from the UK , double vaxxed , and symptoms are wildly atrocious. Everyday I have different issues. I went from no fever to 102.4 in a couple of minutes. Blood oxygen dropped dangerously low and bounced back in a few minutes. Chills , cold sweats. My newest one is that my legs are so achey and sore it feels like they were beaten with a bat , just nonstop pain and can’t sleep. Anyone else experience these? Pretty sure I’d be hospitalized at a minimum without the vax

Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?
