I've been a Corporate Strategy manager at a large F100 studio (not Disney) for about a year now (and it's had its ups and downs). Just figured there isn't too much information on here about corporate strategy paths from non-MBB people, so I thought I'd throw my chex into the mix here.
My background is 2011 undergrad at NYU Stern majoring in Finance & Accounting:
* Started off at a boutique financial services consulting firm for 18 months
* Went to join a large, Indian tech consulting company in their management consulting group (but really a lot of change management, business analyst work, requirements, project management, and the occasional business cases) in the financial services vertical
* Worked my way into strategy in entertainment through a website resume drop (process took 3 months over 5 interviews) - HR Screening, 2x phone calls, 1 Skype super day, In-Person Super Day
I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about the work, how I got there, and what I plan to do next (looking to lateral into a similar role in tech)
