What’s it like working as a data scientist in consulting firms like McKinsey, BCG, Bain & Co., KPMG etc? How is it different from DS roles in tech companies? What do they actually do?

    I was at a startup which did consulting work mostly.

    They competed with these consulting firms and can confirm horrible wlb.

    Tech companies have their own advanced DS teams. Many industries don't. Example - finance, insurance, healthcare industries lack DS expertise. So they outsource a ton of DS work to consulting firms. The learning is good and you can try a variety of projects from a variety of clients in a couple years but the wlb may be bad because you will be under the constant pressure to deliver things fast and develop good connections with the stakeholders, just a heads up.
