Data Scientist at MBB - exit opps

Murricuh's picture
Rank: Monkey | 43

I'm currently a Data Scientist at a Fortune 25 Company. I like the job and plan on staying there for at least 2 more years, but would be open to being a data scientist at one of the major consulting firms -- McKinsey, Bain, BCG.

What sorts of exit opportunities would being a data scientist at MBB (or a lower level consulting firm) give me?

I eventually want to either get into executive management (SVP or higher) at a major F500 company or start my own data science/analytics consultancy.

I don't feel comfortable giving some personal stats and info here, but can PM you if that would make your judgment easier.
