Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed? Bridges never burned, debating re-kindle conversations...

At BCG you're never pigeon-holed in public sector as an A/C. Free to leave to commercial whenever and it's quite easy

Please refer me there, want to leave Deloitte precisely because they are the exact opposite about that issue

I agree with BCG1. There’s no pressure to specialize in anything as an A or C. I’ve been doing federal for 1 year and I’m moving to commercial work without any hassle.

Same as BCG for M

Unsure, but I assume you’re required to spend a significant % of your time on federal work. However most of our public sector practice is generalist consultants who do public sector work, not specific industry “specialists” as a role
