Pros for D: - longer engagements allowing for more balance in life - much easier to recover from a mistake - less stress on up or out - lots of mediocre people making it easier to shine with leas effort - a lot lower expectations at A/C level Pros for BCG: - much better brand recognition and exit options - exposure to truly impactful engagements and clients - faster promotion cycles - better pay and benefits

I echo the above. I moved from Deloitte to BCG and it's basically as above. Not to say Deloitte is mediocre by universal standards - people at deloitte are in the top x% of capability and ambition but at BCG, top 0.0x%, of you catch my drift. Also second that it's a risk-reward trade off - up or out is real so while the above benefits are real, pressure is high and tenures on average are short, so it's not for everyone. Deloitte is a fantastic work-life balance with above average reward, which is a sweet spot for many people

Deloitte Pros: I get messages from lazy recruiters looking for accountants even though I don’t know how to account BCG Pros: All of the other pros Being serious, this is only focused on exit opps. I’d say there are actually a few non-exit pros for working at Deloitte over BCG, but you posted this in the Exits bowl.

Lmao all fair replies I totally expected. What I don't want is to make the jump to find out it's all the same story, different flavor. Appreciate the replies though!
