    Consulting companies are companies that get paid to provide consultancy services to larger companies. For example Booz Allen Hamilton ( a consulting company) would get paid by the Department of Transportation to come up with a solution to one of their existing problems. Another example would be Discover Card using McKinsey (another consulting company) to provide them with consultants to study a problem at the company related to any number of their issues and present a solution at the end of their stay. If you like the case study approach to problem solving, you'll like being a consultant.
