Thought I could get some insights from you guys.
So I have been thinking lately about consulting career (again). Most of my friends are in big 3 and big 4. I am basically a industry guy and have around 6-7 years of industry experience. Then did a top tier MBA and back to working in industry on a contract job at the moment.
However I couldn't decide for the life of me as to whether consulting is for me or is it just that initial urge to become a consultant?
Now I am thinking of applying to consulting again. Sometimes I feel that I am too 'old' to start a consulting career, not to mention the travelling and the stress and all. I am comfortable working in industry and actually feel that my experience will be more respected in industry than in consulting. Whenever I try to apply to a consulting job and when I look at the hiring managers, they are at least 5 years younger than me (direct recruits i guess from university).
On the other hand I feel like (rather I was told) having some consulting experience on my CV will help my future career growth.
I would very much appreciate your advice.
