Probably depends on location but I’ve heard mixed reviews. Some like it but are either only there temporarily to get promoted then leave OR if they’re pretty senior and there to stay with a better WLB compared to alternatives. Bad things I’ve heard include poor internal systems/procedures and poor management

I am applying for jobs at CG and know people there. There feedback is a relaxed culture especially compared to big 4. Less cut throat than Big 4 and more respect for individuals and WLF.

Invent is also a mixed bag of federated practices. Mileage will vary by location and by practice. If you don’t fit into it’s complex culture, it could be minor leagues for tier 3(Alix, Huron,,) or Tier 2 (Big 4+ Big A).

Alix is a boutique strategy firm that compete for work against the mbb so they’re tier 2 below them

Invent is rebranded Capgemini Consulting and was just strategy but during a reorganization this summer, Invent includes the Digital Operations group that primarily does implementations of Supply chain software. They are still trying to figure out what they are trying to offer

I think a lot of comments here are not specific to Invent. It really operates independently from the larger firm, as all of their other brands do. It has a good reputation and good culture.

I get specialty boutiques but how do mid size, strategy firms (atk, ow, S&) win work against mbb? Do they just not? Is it pricing?

Recruiters suck. They say they will set up a call with the hiring manager and ask for availability but then never follow through. Why not just be honest lol

Care to share your COVID routines??? I’ve been treating this new normal like it’s going to end because I enjoyed the routine of travel/working in person/etc. As the reality sets in that it’s going to be awhile (my client is saying spring 2021 at the earliest) I am starting to feel sad about losing a routine I loved. Can you share changes to your routine that have made you appreciate/embrace the new normal???

Does getting promoted matter for MBA programs? Been in consulting for 1.5 years and I might quit end of 2019 because I'm sick of travel. Problem is it doesn't look like I'll be getting promoted....

Two weeks ago: manager offers me role then staffs someone else without followup. Last week: offered role that ended up being unsold. This week: offered role but might not be sold. Screw the bench.
