I have been in consulting a few years now and have progressed to Manager.
I enjoy what I do and the people I work with but rewards don't seem to match the amount of travel and the stress. Having said that I think I am paid market rate for a Mgr.
I was looking at returning to Industry and have just been offered a role with a blue chip at a package about 40% greater. I worry in a few years I will be bored in Industry but I think it will be better life balance and for my health.
At the moment consulting feels more like a career but it will be a lot of work and reward many not follow.
It feels like this is a big call in my life and anyone I talk to have a biased view point.
Any thoughts or comment welcome.
