Almost brought a BCG umbrella to work today. Does bringing stuff branded with competitors' names matter (home office, not client office)?

We used to have them for recruiting, but I think we have different stuff now. That said, we do give you high quality fiat currency twice a month, which should be readily convertible to umbrellas ;)

I wouldn't do it. Most people prob wouldn't care, but I'm sure there will be the few that do...

Bad style.

Let me clarify. Yes, that's a bad thing. As Bain1 said, the few that care could care a lot (probably the more senior folk will care). They will assume that if you're happy do take it to your actual office you'd probably be happy to take in public and to your client, both of which are not promoting your own firm.

P.S. Swag is the best

I guess I'll just use the BCG umbrella on my personal time then. It's actually pretty high quality! If my own firm gave me such a good umbrella, I'd definitely be using it... Hint hint.

Also, at Jr you might not have full appreciation but if one of the partners competes often with BCG for work, they might not be cool about it.
