Strategy Consulting .. Are you happy?

 
#1 Strategy Consulting .. Are you happy?

Corporate Whore

How many strategy consultants are happy in their job/role?

After speaking with a number of my peers (3+ years removed from graduation), we all seem to have come to the general consensus that we're slowly coming to detest our roles.

Is this a universal feeling after 3+ years?

I'd be happy if it weren't for the ridiculous hours. Stress I can handle. Pressure and unbelievably high expectations I can handle. Micromanaging bosses I can handle. Even egos too. But not these stupid long hours.

I think that it's basically a job for grads and workaholics who don't have much in the way of family commitments (read: not balanced individuals). For the rest of us, it's just not a feasible option.

Great blog by the way, love it.

Just left an MBB firm after a couple of years. Plan on going back in the next year or two, absolutely loved it. Obviously not every day or every project - and some days were really sh*t - but overall, superb.

This is actually very funny.. This is a consulting forum but as soon as one says that the job is ok it is gonna be labelled as HR

MBB doesnt need any advertisment here. I think that consulting is a demanding job, possibly like IB, even though less paid. If you dont like this job just go to some other forum.
