Does L.E.K consulting really give you both corp strategy AND M&A experience? That sounds like what I am looking for. Both finance strategy and CDD/Valuation/FDD experiences. I'm at Big 4 and it is impossible to get exposure to both. Does MBB have a role like that too? Or only L.E.K? (Or is this even true?) Happy Halloween everyone. Stay safe and have fun

LEK is basically only strategy and DD. You’ll get great experience in both.

Can I DM you to learn more about L.E.K?

LEK is your best bet. EYP is probably option 2.

What B4? I've done both easily at KPMG Strategy

KPMG Strategy, which is a sub group of Deal Advisory and Strategy. FDD is on the deal advisory side of the house, but not hard to rotate over there for a few projects. Strategy has performance transformation and diligence as an offering which does Corp Strategy, Performance Improvement, and CDD/ODD.

At BCG you will technically be a generalist as an associate or consultant. However, in practice — and especially if you’re good — you have the ability to pick what you work on. That’s how you can specialize.

It’s amazing that you can go through four rounds of interviews for a position and then never hear from a firm again. It’s happened two times now: one was B4 and one was industry. Talent has no time to send a boiler-plate “we’ve selected another candidate” email? The level of unprofessionalism is mind-boggling.
