Oh well if it ain't Village Idiot, the single most contributor to this forum, the know it all, the consultant par excellence.
unlike u i dunt try to get my english completely correct to the punctation - havent got time. dunt try to showcase a huge command of the language nor impress upon with my literature.
And oh I'm sorry I am not a grad ... perhaps you are given the amount of time you spend here trying to show that your providing constructive and frank opinion whilst your really just taking a cheap dig
And yes consulting is abt relationships at partner level. i was a consultant myself so i know and NO not at one of the firms you are at. your certainly not strat material - none of them post on this site. i know cos i worked at one. Unlike you. And still the Pay nor prestige doesn't compare - lifes not abt money nor prestige- but it might be nice for consultants to realize where they really stand
Lastly take a look around howmany ppl within finance have started their own houses be it private equity, hedge funds, asset management firms - how many consultants have started businesses and indeed management consulting boutiques - way fewer by a mile - more importantly they are by no means as lucarative and money making. And the ones that actually do are from strat houses.
Overall village idiot - it wuld be nice if u get back to your job if u even have one. Hmm do you ? Now I never took a dig at you infact like u i gave my opinion but u wanted to act like the hot shot that you think you are typing away from a screen....
Enjoy your weekend perhaps you can come with up a final fitting response - i wont be waiting though :P
