Apple just excludes Amazon by calling it FANG

Do BCG and Bain fight over that though? Pretty clear consensus that BCG is the first "B".

No they just make trillion dollar companies. Also find it amazing how MBB (collectively) has about as many employees as Google/Facebook but is collectively worth about $25B vs Google which is a $1T company despite both having top tier talentt in the world. Shows much difference objectives/structures make
