What do you consider real consulting? You should read MBA forums, poet & quant, firmsconsulting etc.

We all agree prestige wise, mbb > tier 2 (incl. acquired big 4 strat firms) > big 4. So i'm assuming your deduction comes from the fact that big 4 is of a lower tier in a certain industry, hence they are not real consulting firms.

If that's the logic, do you mean to say [NAME OF LOW-TIER AUDIT FIRM (e.g. BDO)] isn't real audit? SME law firms are not real law firms?

MBB only deal with the high level strategy work and usually don't follow through with the implementation which most of the other consulting firms down the tiers would cover. If you are specialising in a niche area and is involved in the groundwork which can be transferrable to the industry side, you might actually find the work in non-MBB environment being more relevant aside from the compensation structure and the prestige.

How about ey parthenon, strategy&, and monitor deloitte? How are they viewed? I’m from Local uni final year and there have been instances past/current graduates have been able to enter one of these firms. Either thru internship or full time offer.

Also, mbb is doing alot more implementation now. Why else would a “mckinsey implementation” track be created?
