Promo opp to industry is what I'm doing and I recommend u do the same

Thanks! A1, I am a newly promoted consultant so that's a long shot. But what prompted you to that decision?

I'm an SA, got overlooked for promo (even tho it was promised) decided to test the market and able to find a manager level role in industry. Wasn't easy but with Accenture on your resume, people are usually willing to interview you.

Also the travel got old

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA?

Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Received MBB offer, which I’m very grateful for. I have a medical degree with some work experience. I want to stay in healthcare. I like pharma/biotech, provider systems but also early stage healthcare investing. Certainly open to consulting long term. Few Qs: is the promotion pipeline any different for advanced degree folks? What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!

I am a 1-2 year lawyer in a large law firm (BigLaw non-US/UK) and feel like I am being under-utilised in my current team/firm. I think the team is too heavily staffed at the junior level which means I’m not getting enough experience for my level. It’s also saturated with competent mid level lawyers who seem to get all the good work before it trickles down. A position has opened at a competitor firm that I am considering applying for.

Since I am fed an additional interview before the on-site, does this mean my feedback was neutral?
