What kind of consulting?

Is it for sigfried group? Anyone here care to comment on it?

Not sigfried group but similar in nature. I would go from company to company filling senior accounting roles for several months at a time. Could be good exposure to a bunch of different companies and industries.

@AA1 you can literally have that in 20 minutes if you just leave now and go to the store.

How much is the bonus?

Do it

A friend interviewed with Siegfried and came away with the impression that it was a glorified staffing agency rather than a consultancy. The pay would've been better than the role he ended up taking, but his current gig looks like a better long term opportunity in my book. Not saying that's the reality, just make sure there will be good opportunities wherever you end up (for whatever your definition of "good" is).

Ok so pay is good, but defiantly you will lose career growth, like you will learn but you won’t get manger promotion on time. Also what if there is no consulting gig available? You won’t have work, no one is going to hire you during down time. I wouldn’t take it unless you really want the pay bump

I’m interested in transitioning to a consulting role in a consumer markets practice.

As additional background I’ve been running a successful side hustle for about 6 years, and I’ve gotten a decent understanding of growing a small business, consumer habits, but unfortunately I don’t have any consulting experience in consumer markets. Any advice or leads?
