This isn’t an article, OP. This is marketing fluff posted by a company on their own website 🤦🏼‍♀️

likesmartfunny

This person has no idea what they’re talking about. It’s also an article about how a boutique sells BI tools, which isn’t even a product or service that we sell, nor our competitors. It’s a marketing piece. This is like saying, “why local taco shops are taking over: hear how Noma, Eleven Madison, Le Bernardin, Chipotle, and Taco Bell (Big 5 of food) are losing to the taqueria down the street.”

^IBM… is that you?

Are they considering “Big 5” to be strategy? This article feels like it was written by one of those “Former Deloitte” LinkedIn dorks.

funnylike

How could they include Deloitte and Accenture before KPMG when there is the acronym “MBBK”?

funny

Lol this isn’t an article, it’s an about us section of a boutique consulting firm. Of course they’re saying boutique consulting is the answer to all life’s problems The big 5 thing is weird though, I have never heard anyone say that

Deloitte and Andersen/Accenture never exited consulting as EY, KPMG, and PWC did. In all though this makes sense because for experienced consultants the barriers to entry are low, office space isn’t needed, and the bureaucracy and pension costs can be mitigated. This means consultants can deliver value for significantly reduced cost vs large established firms.

It is a badly written article, simply stated. As said above, it is intended to be a promotional material and definitely not subjective nor balanced. This is just my opinion. Disagree?

MAD BB :3

Folks aboid ANYONE that uses the word "boutique" that means amature hour with low pay and no benefits.

If I had a dollar for everytime Deloitte and Accenture...

I do not get this article. It is advocating for super boutique consulting firms instead of choosing BIG4 or BIG5. However, I do not see example of these types of firms. I have dealt with #CAPCO, #Slalom and other similar and smaller firms. Please help clarify by examples.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools .

Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
