I don't know much about Strategy Consulting and Investment banking... Can somebody tell me if I am right or wrong or if I am missing something...?
- travelling (actually I would like to travel for a few years...)
- less money than in I-Banking.
- difficult to measure the added value? have to convince people to implement the solution and deal with the politics...
- social skills, deal more with people and less with computer models. (less time in front of a computer)
- less hours than in I-Banking?
- free plane tickets...¿?
- less social life ? social skills gone after some time? (I repeat I don't know what an IB does... I am just imagining somebody crunching numbers and modelling with excel and giving some presentations from time to time... writing to sell the project or whatever...
-lots of time in front of a computer screen.
- more methodic... easy... always the same?
- more money.. bonus.
- fixed location
-easier to get in (less picky about grades...?)
- it is easier to deal with numbers than with people
Is this any close to reality?
I would like to do an MBA a few years from now so maybe would have to take into account that some Management Consulting firms may pay for my MBA if I am good enough¿?
Otherwise would the higher pay at IB allow me to pay for the MBA myself?
Am I missing something?
