Those two firms staff ex-MBBs as "Independent Professionals" on projects. It pays around 2000 USD / day ans you become their sub-contractor to execute on projects they sold.
I am (associate) and I HATE it due to the work/life (im)balance. Met a guy that works as Independent Professional and he told me he works 150 days/years and makes around 300 k USD. Rest of the year is FREE TIME. They have loads of projects for him so he can choose between projects and it's easy to say NO.
For me that sounds like the first easy option to reach freedom again and still make decent money - but maybe I miss something.
Has anyone heard of the above firms and has a perspective on it???
