A career in management consulting – a viable longterm option?

 
#1 A career in management consulting – a viable longterm option?

Dear All,

My background is technical in nature mainly in the SME networking arena. With over 12 years experience, (6 as an employee / 6 as a contractor) I am about to complete a full time MBA. Having also a technically focused MSc I don’t wont to return to the roles I left but I would like to enter the consulting sector as it offers more scope. At 30 years of age I appreciate the fact that I am starting a little late but feel with 12 years “real world” experience puts me in a good position. When working as a contractor my IT work frequently overlapped into BPR and change management type activities.

So my question is with all the “doom and gloom” I read about the consulting sector at the moment does it hold much future for somebody in my position? I have always worked hard but I am concerned about spending the next couple of years working like a “mad man” only to get made redundant in the next round of “lay offs”. If anybody can shed any light on typical UK salaries for somebody at my level I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

TC

Salary range £40K-£50K at the moment . . . if you can find a job!

Make sure you take out redundancy insurance and that you save money too!!

Robert,

Thanks for the insight on the salary side of things. With being in the IT contracting business I have learnt you always need to be saving for a "rainy day".

Regards,

TC
