Is there life after consulting?


Are partners at top consulting firms still destined to become the leaders of the corporate world?

At campus recruiting events, the top consulting firms pitch themselves as CEO factories. Join us, and accelerate your career to become a CEO, they say… The logic goes like this: firms like McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group, or Bain always hire the smartest graduates from the best MBA schools around the world. Over the next few years, these consultants learn to structure complex business issues, perform sophisticated analysis, manage inter-disciplinary teams of associates and clients, and communicate their advice to a senior audience of CEOs and board members. Add to this a solid dose of brainwashing to make these insecure, over-achieving minds believe that they are destined for greatness.
