Consulting Exit Opportunities

Wtf is happening at Strategy&? I have three mba friends and none of them got promoted after 3 years at SC - all counseled out. At my old consulting firm everyone (90+%) made manager in 2 years

True. It looks like D figured out that they would be more successful integrating the pure strategy folks into broader market offerings rather than keeping as a stand alone.

5 years later I still can't believe it's called Strategy&. Although on the flip side, at least they got to keep their identity unlike the Monitor Deloitte folks 😂

Wrong. No strategy firm promotes 90% of MBA hires to manager in 2 years. Lots of turnover and up or out

Manager promo can happen at 2, 2.5 or 3 years. Only the bottom 10% get counseled out. I’m guessing it just happens to be a coincidence your friends were all bottom performers. No big layoffs this year, we’ve been selling strong.

Some advice from an almost "boomer" to you almost "zoomers". You need to learn to deal with people who's words infuriate you. I get that social media is mostly anonymous - but growing up in a culture that cancels everything you disagree with and removes any of the past that offends you is really scary.
