Houston Energy (Oil & Gas) Consulting
I'm an engineer in oil and gas, and I'm considering switching to consulting (strategy, not IT). I'd like to stay in Houston as it appears most consulting firms here focus on energy (I want to stay in oil & gas industry). I've got a few questions:
-How often do Houston energy consultants travel? Seems like most of their clients are located in Houston; unless consultants go to job sites.
-Are part-time MBA graduates like UT and Rice well represented at MBB? I know they are at Tier 2s like Accenture and Deloitte, but I'm not sure about MBB.
-What type of skills/background do consulting firms want from engineers who aren't in finance/marketing roles? Cost optimization, project planning/implementation and leadership are what I think they want to see.
Thanks, I appreciate the help!
