My Experience as a Software Consultant

At the end of 2020, I resigned from my job as a software consultant. After several years as a full-timer on product teams, I spent about 4 years doing consulting, first at a small boutique shop and then at a larger agency. Here are some unordered thoughts about what I liked and disliked about my consulting experience. It goes without saying that these are my personal experiences and thoughts, and I have no idea how much they overlap with anybody else’s.

What I Disliked About Consulting

Conclusion

There’s no real conclusion here, just sharing some feelings. I’m glad that I spent a few years as a consultant. I’d consider going back to it in the future, but my next job search is definitely going to be back in product team land.
