If you love challenges and travel, this is for you!
Consulant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 11, 2017
I worked as a Technology Business Analyst (later Consultant) for three years. I believe that this is the perfect post-graduate job for anyone that is willing to travel every week - you get to see so many different industries and work with different departments, which is useful if you're not sure where you'll fit in.
You also get to work directly with the executive suite at large companies, something you'd have to wait years to do using the regular industry track.
However, the drawback is traveling and work intensity. You must be ready to jump on a plane every Monday through Thursday, and sometimes even stay weekends. On the days that you travel, be ready to be at the office at 7 am and not leave until 2 am. This is tough on relationships, family, and friendships even though Deloitte is trying to work on the work/life balance. However, for me, the compensation and the challenges made it worth it.
Travel, hotel and flight points, different projects
illusion of work/life balance, long days
