BCG Platinion vs McKinsey Digital for cool tech projects?

I would say McKinsey digital since we’re generally larger, with more connections globally. Our global staffing model also makes it much easier to get on to interesting projects as compared to some of our regional peers. For those saying that our competitors are far ahead of us - I’m not certain that being ahead in revenue/volume (where they are waaaay ahead due to size) is the same as being ahead in terms of interesting, high quality, unique use-cases or bleeding edge tech. Op - the overall question comes down to what you actually consider cool. SAP digital transformations? Not my jam. Using Python to build use-case specific NLP tool to optimize a high-value portion of a clients supply chain management process? That’s my jam.


Yep I can confirm what @McK3 says is fairly true and it also applies to us as well. Truth is that access to C-suite opens up a lot of interesting opportunities, but that doesn’t mean that end-to-end we do more superior, cutting-edge or impactful digital work. What a lot of Management consultants (who have never worked in tech outside of MBB) fail to realize is their ideas and approaches aren't novel or cutting-edge. More often it's very likely some big tech consulting firm like Accenture or Deloitte has already made that pitch, developed that idea, proposed that project. They just didn't have the executive sponsorship to do it and we do.


Neither. They are pretty behind DD and ACN when it comes to actual tech work


Not referring to strategy work here but actual design and build capabilities across the CX landscape


ACN Digital


Digital is dead man

Have worked with exciting startups on new ventures in Asia at McK e.g. digital finance, ecosysyem partnerships etc.


Indeed sir, utterly miserable. I do say sir, how does anyone have the patience?! 🧐


Implementation is cash cow. D and ACN have been milking it hard. Doubt MBB is in this market if not then most likely far behind D and ACN.


it is!!! i have honestly heard of multiple occasions when strategists suggest and then when the client wants to move forward they have NO idea how to proceed

If you aren’t doing them at Deloitte Digital I doubt the grass is greener elsewhere. Deloitte has a solid practice.

First time home buyer here—although not ideal, would it be better to take money out of my Roth or traditional 401k to help pay for the house?


Overheard my career counsellor (also project manager) making fun of me to two female consultants. First project with ACN, we've always been very professional and respectful to each other. What do?


A recruiter I'm working with is bragging on LinkedIn about how efficient and personable their recruiting process is as I'm on week 8 of slow communications and endless interviews 🙄 so tempted just to throw out my application and call them out on their BS


People at the airport: "Thanksgiving is such a busy day to travel." Try Monday morning at ORD (including pre-check) #smh

If Obama was a consultant he would have been rolled off after 2yrs. Loved the empowering sales dialogue for client(country). But the plan went Red due to no execution and program delivery failed.


I've always known delta does this but today I got to be on one of the flights bringing home one of our fallen soldiers. He's finally returning home after 66 years from North Korea. 🇺🇸🇺🇸


Anyone move from K to D, what do you think? Assuming you were very happy at K and moved for non-work reasons.


If only excel worked well (read: efficiently and with shortcuts) on a Mac...


When you tell your PM I'll have the problem solved within the hour. And he emails back, "Why so long ?" 😣


I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
