Has pipeline slowed for you (US): MBB Big 4 Boutiques (Parthenon) Other (ATK, Strategy&)? I know lots of overlap in the type of work and clients but thought this is the best way to segment for now.

Increase in cost cutting and threat assessment (sales and operations impact) activity. Unclear how total revenue will be affected as these are on the shorter of project spectrum (3-12 wks). I personally think major, end-to-end transformation type projects will be postponed and we’ll work more on short-term critical projects, which are more fun but less lucrative in absolute terms. Current client work mostly intact with a few exceptions.

MBB: a little bit of slowdown, but still a strong pipeline of new potential work.

Government business ist mostly stable. Private sector - international projects more difficult, local mostly fine. The pipeline is a bit more difficult, als many things are put on hold. Different kind of work emerging, though (crisis management etc). (‚Other‘ :D)

I have no clue but Id assume a lot of these firms are getting works BECAUSE of the crisis, no? Clients are scared and need thought partnership / leadership.

Maybe but also when you’re in crisis is the first thing you do throw $ at a consulting firm or figure out how to retain your ppl?

Big4: Not cloud and other enabling/cost saving areas

Well Parthenon is part of Big 4 now but that's besides the point. Think this is industry specific. Alot of SOWs were already signed earlier this year or late last year. In fact alot of SOWs were signed up to 2 weeks ago.

For Parthenon, work was cut short as the clients core business was affected. For EY advisory ongoing transformationwork continues as usual, although deployment efforts will be virtual

No, slow down yet, if it comes then I expect it to start in 4-6 weeks (if at all). I believe that a lot of Working Capital improvement projects or restructurings could come out of that

Technical implementation pilots of any analytics projects based on machine learning or AI is completely halted. There’s just not enough money in the system to support this. Much bigger fires to fight.

A lot of these projects are in operations plus used for transformation.

Hi all! Looking for advice! Im starting at an MBB out of undergrad (interned at D). Met my cohort and coworkers tonight at happy hour. Everyone’s super nice but I can’t help but feel drained. A partner probably noticed that I was nervous and actually pulled me aside to tell me it’s ok etc. I’m obv grateful for the opportunity but just worried i will be seen as too introverted or not confident enough and be a problem in front of clients. My MBTI type is also “not consultant-y”. Any advice? TIA!
