Welcome to the Next Level. On today’s show we talk about the ups and downs of consulting. If you are now or have been a consultant, we invite you to laugh, boo, chuckle and cheer along with us.
If you work with consultants or wonder what it would be like to work as a consultant, this is your chance to get the inside scoop.
We’re joined by two guests with consulting experience to talk about their experiences and share their insights about the pros and cons of the consulting life. Our guests are Rob Walker ([email protected]) and Jason Skala (@crumb4life).
Rob and Jason discuss the upsides of consulting, including the variety of work experiences you encounter and opportunities for education; and the downsides, such as being on call nights and weekends, long travel, and billing hours.
They also offer advice on getting into the consulting business, how to decide if it’s time to walk away, and more. It’s a forthright and and friendly conversation about the consulting life.
Our Sanity Check segment tackles management questions from real engineers and IT pros. If you’d like to ask a question for an upcoming segment, send an email to [email protected] or check out our survey.
