From a BCG perspective these are the roles that I have seen people transition to:

  • Learning & Development
  • People (HR)
  • Recruiting
  • Career Development / Staffing

Hope this helps to clarify!

Agree with all the below.

  1. Most probably you will have travel no matter what, sometimes even more
  2. The transition is quite easy, however, you should have good performance to have the negotiating power
  3. Salary most probably will be lower / will grow more slowly

Ex-MBB, Experienced Hire; I will teach you not only the how, but also the why of case interviews

I have seen a lot of former colleagues either transfer internally or even come back to non-consulting positions. Fair warning though: you will still travel - sometimes even quite a lot.
