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

D2 guess who’s more successful ... it’s you. Brands don’t matter when you deliver real value

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.
