Seeking perspectives on career path. TIA! 9 YOE (6.5 in consulting, 2.5 in BU strategy and M&A). Involved in end-to-end process (incl. modeling) but processes largely led by Corporate M&A team. 3 tuck-ins completed (all in 2022). Options considering: 1/ Continue current path, stack more deal experience, strong chance of Director promo in 3-6 months 2/ Don’t wait, just jump or apply to other roles 3/ Study and go back to grab MBA (considering MIT or Stanford MSX - 1 YR) TC: 175K (…low)
