Jump To Consulting This 'Late' In My Career
Looking for some career advice as I'm thinking about pivoting from an 'industry' role into consulting. I feel like this will set me up for my dream role of becoming an operating partner in healthcare PE, but that's just a hunch given what I've seen from the few roles that are out there..
I have 8 years of experience in medical technology/diagnostics, with expertise in a wide variety of functions: commercial strategy & ops, corp dev, product, marketing, etc.. currently a Senior Manager with an annual total comp of $300K.
How feasible is it to make a move from industry to consulting, with no prior consulting experience?
Would I need to get an MBA?
Would I be taking a major haircut in title and pay to make the jump, or can I come in at my current level?
What firms are the top tier med tech shops? Likewise... what groups/functions are most attractive?
