Senior offer but fear sales - deal or no deal

 
#1 Senior offer but fear sales - deal or no deal

milkman

All, some advice much appreciated

After several years in pharma industry I have an opportunity to move back into consulting with a top consulting firm, senior manager, 110k base etc

I am execution focused; pitches and long hours over mindless decks to sell another dream doesn't do it for me. I want to be in the company, sleeves rolled up, working on actually implementing my solution, not pitching for it. The City wine and lunching dine talks are not my thing.

Question is, will my career be limited if I chose to become a specialist in execution. Most firms during recruitment say that a number of associate partners / directors do indeed just that, but its hard to cut the marketing waffle and see if in reality one is actually targeted on sales plus utilization.

Lastly, i am worried about the hours. 60 hour weeks can be long; do you think I face even longer hours at this level? The firm is tier leader MBBB.

Thank you very much in advance

marsday to milkman (#1)

if it was Big 4 or SI then I would say expect a heavy sales expectation at this levek. In MBBB usually you can join in an SME capacity (expert track as they call it at McKinsey).

2 points:

1. you imply (or maybe my inference is wrong) that you will be specialist in your sector.

2. you mention MBB..B

the only tier 1 strat house which allows specialisation to this degree is Booz. In which case you should be fine.
