If you’re interested in a consulting career, don’t dismiss opportunities in these internal consulting teams. But what are the advantages and disadvantages of internal vs external consulting groups?

Internal Consulting vs. External Consulting, originally published on Management Consulted, discusses the main advantages and disadvantages of working in an internal consulting team. It also provides information on some of the leading companies that have these opportunities.
