    What are the benefits for a black belt working for a Six Sigma consultancy firm vs a large company running six sigma?

    I have done both and personally, feel more at home in the world of consulting.  But, it is not for everyone.  To name a few:
    1.  More variety of industries and processes
    2.  Usually more money
    3.  Less BS and politics…big one for me
    4.  Usually work with more experienced associates
    5.  Less “line” responsibility and day to day accountability for deployment
    6.  More opportunity to grow professionally; different activities and eventually client management
    7.  Get to travel on weekends, holidays and other important dates
    8.  Miss your kids growing up
    9.  Get to stay in a hotel most of your life, drive a rental car and eat alone
    But, as a BB you will not be at the top of the food chain.  I suggest that you acquire a recognized MBB otherwise you might get to do the grunt work as a BB.

    Darth,
    I like the list. Mine would be much the same.

    BTDT,
    It has happened way to many times.
    There was no Memorial Day celebration here today.
    Regards
