MB are lower because their digital practices suck. Tech is the future. Pdubs and Uncle D, as well as our buddies over at Accenture are slaughtering all in this space.

Another related point being, I think their sample size is too large if they're only asking recent grads. I bet it includes subjects that don't know what BCG & McK do vs. if they'd asked employers.

Deloitte and pdubs pamper interns then make you slaves when you come back. When I interned at PwC the joke was "the best positions here are partner and then intern". So right. Most people don't know about MBB until entering Consulting.

I'm under no impression that we're super prestigious, but we do some damn good work.

@D3 It's a consulting company that, like your company, is not part of MBB. Don't try to discredit me by calling out where I work in hopes that it will distract from my statement that your company, like my company, doesn't have the same reputation as McKinsey, Bain, or BCG.

I feel like Bain is moving futher away from MBB. I find BCG very similar to the Firm but Bain feels like a different animal now. Time for KPMG to step up? I love to be proven wrong because I like MBB

I have a colleague that is constantly taking my work and presenting it to our leadership as her own. I seriously don't mind being a team player, but she is literally taking all of the credit. The manager thanked her hard work and going above and beyond, but the work she is presenting is literally mine 100%. She thanks the manager and explains how challenging it was, but she persevered for the project. I'm seriously I'm shock Should I say something to my manager?

Just saw a peer, who didn't really do any great work (average / middling at best, careless with lack of attention to detail at worst) when we were on the same team, from my Big 4 firm exit to Apple. Happy for him but just a reminder that getting into good companies is just about how well you can bs.
