My question is: "what is the difference between the actual work that you do as a consultant as compared to an investment banker?" Due to my non-business background I don't have a full picture about investment banking. I have been focusing on consulting for a year or so, so I know a lot about it. However, recently I became interested in investment banking and from reading a couple of websites it seems to me that what they do is exactly the same as consultants but just more narrow in the sense that it's more focussed on the financial side.
Once again, the question is mainly about the actual work (how big are the teams, who is usually on the team, what do you actually do, do you do it in the office or at client's location, how long are the projects, what's the client exposure for juniors etc.) and not about differences in salary or workload, although if you don't mind typing, this information would also be appreciated.
