For all those Ex-PA, could you share perspective on why you left PA and whether you still think it was the right step to leave ? Where did you go to ?

Ex Pa to PA-er (#1)

In answer to the original poster:

I left PA to move into industry for four main reasons:

- Lack of control over the work you did, coupled with a practice that was relatively unsucessful in selling work

- Limited chance to line manage until you reach PC or even MC level

- Poor renumeration and reward

- A loss of belief in senior managements ability and credibility to deliver new 'propositions/initiatives' that genuinely offered insight to clients

Was it the right step to leave / where did I go:

- I moved into a strategy role within telecoms firm

- I am now responsible for delivery of large scale strategic projects, managing the work of others and reporting to the CFO/CEO/Shareholder board on a regular basis

- I obtained a large pay rise at the point I moved and this has continued with substantial pay increases and bonuses

So in summary definetly the right decision for me, but it varies dependant upon where you are with PA and where you are thinking of going!

Thanks Ex-PAer - do you mind if you tell me since when did you leave ? Are we talking within past year or more ?

Potential PA-er to Ex Pa (#5)

Based on the info on this thread from Ex-PAer, does anyone have thoughts about how good PA is - ie. pros and cons ? I tried to search in previous threads but it does not seem like this was talked before.
