Then again, what do I know? I'm a senior about to graduate and I still haven't landed a fucking job.
Can you ask him to give me one?
Do appreciate your comments. I think our mindset might be more similar due to being relatively close in age. I can definitely see the answer changing depending on age and appetite for risk.
Wish I could hook you up but I'm not even set myself haha

How extensive are the Partners' networks?
What are their expansion plans?
How many delivery consultants do they expect to have on board?
What is their contingency if their sole client fails?
Can you go back to your old company?
Can you jump into something else if things go pear shaped?
It depends on what you would consider junior. I think the next person up is ~5 years worth of experience.
I wish I could answer your questions but I can't give out too much information at this point in time.
I really do appreciate your insightful questions though. There is definitely one question that I haven't asked about yet that I need to.

If answers are (1) long enough and (2) yes, then definitely follow your partner, I think.
My current firm doesn't expect MBA to be promoted for one more level ahead of me. I can probably make that level in one more year if I stayed.
I'm planning on going back to school either 2012 or 2013. My dilemma is that the work is in the same category as what I'm doing now (just more interesting), but this overall industry may not be what I want to pursue post-mba.
