Lame. Every M&A RTO buyout restructure etc has auditors lawyers and investment bankers on it too. Fact of the matter is that out of all the professional services, consulting brings the least actual value to anything.

Value is subjective. Seems like management feels differently from you to be paying consultants then. Maybe they aren't as operationally savvy as you though

Hahaha 'value is subjective" is the biggest crock of bull ive heard and is very much on brand with consulting in general.

In the same way missionaries go about telling people that they can't see, hear or feel god, but trust us, he exists!

Bottom line, if you are a fresh grad and have offers from MBB/Tier 2 (OW, Kearney, S&). you take it 99% of the time. Regardless of your major (simply because there is very little jobs out there offering the same pay/branding/exit opportunities at the start of your career).

Anything other than that becomes subjective. E.g. your acn/big 4/mid-tier strat firms.

And there you go - thanks for this. Look at how powerful religious organisations are in today's world.

If selling a "crock of bull" enables me to be successful to such an extent, just like these religious organisations, i'm down for it.

Value is subjective, in the sense that you don't seem to appreciate the industry while CEOs around the world do. Like I said, maybe you are just more operationally savvy and gifted than these corporate leaders who don't know what they are doing.
