Q

Should I switch to consulting?

I've been working as in "in-house" Notes Developer for a large financial institution for the past three years, prior to that I worked as a Notes Developer for an insurance company. Recently a local consulting firm contacted me about a position as a consultant. I like the money they're talking about, but am concerned about whether this is a good move. Do you have any suggestions?


Consulting positions can offer a variety of work and the chance to learn how many types of companies utilize technology. Other positives normally include staying on top of technology, a higher salary, and paid training. Talk with some of the consultants at this firm, make sure that the quality of life is right for you, some firms pay great, but have you working 60 hours every week. Make sure that the firm is committed to Notes technology, see if they are a Lotus Biz Partner. Lastly check on benefits, often local consulting firms pay great, but skimp on benefits. This could be a great opportunity or a big mistake, do your homework.
