Following, curious as well.


I ended up not doing it - but I work at a boutique and got offers from KPMG and PwC. Definitely doable if that’s what you want!


Very common. Typical scenario is someone gets hired at a boutique firm, does a year and then laterals over. Typically, they'll make you start as a year 1 role, with opportunity for accelerated promotion


Fully agree with LEK C2

Yea very common

As LEK pointed out. It is among the lateral moves quite common. The most common is moving from a life science firm to BCG. We have a few people doing this each month.

Various firms. I've seen laterals from the larger ones such as LEK, SKP, and Huron to the smaller one that might only have 1-2 offices. Off season recruting depends on firm and city office hiring needs. So technical answer is depends. If you want to chat more send me a DM
