Public sector Conslting vs Tech consulting

adu's picture
Rank: Monkey | 55

I have an opportunity to work as an entry level public sector consultant at one firm and an entry level tech consultant at the other. Any advice on whats better ( more interesting and has better exit ops?). The public sector firm isnt the strongest in PS but its strategy practice is strong and the tech firm is strong in tech but its strategy side is weaker.

How do you see the rest of your career?

I've always heard (and might be wrong) that tech consulting has very limited outs to switch to other industries unlike most other consulting sectors. Now the money is good (or great), but if your long-term goal isn't in tech, I'd think hard if that's where you'd like to work and potentially 'waste' a few years of your career.
