      Great book to learn about Management Consulting behind the scenes;

      The Firm: The Story of McKinsey and Its Secret Influence on American Business.

      It still hasn't shed its old HBS boy's club approach to business. They take good care of each other and amass obscene amounts of money & power.

      Well, couple of cliche answers- always wanted to find that job that is more dynamic and helps solving business problems and all that jazz, got some good problem solving skills, great with communicating, love to meet new people, discuss ideas. Hectic sounds always fun to me.
      Good enough for an answer?

    Seems like I’ve seen more management consultants become product managers than vice versa

      Many more mgmt consultants end up as “product managers” in dinosaur industries. The ones that make it into tech are the lucky ones.
