Hi 🐠, how do you view or would rank ACN Strategy compared to the other Tier 2 firms such as AT Kearney, Strategy&, LEK, etc? Are they Tier 2?

Previously saw as on par with S&, but that may change with salary not keeping pace with market.

I’d agree with the assessment of bottom of tier 2. We are not big 4, we are setup like a true strategy firm. Our salaries reflect that (even if lower end of tier 2). We push a hard MBA pipeline and have strict recruitment guidelines

I am planning to recruit again for MBB but honestly not really too worried. It would be a nice thing but I am more worried about firm culture and environment. I am an older MBA (compared to peers) and have already over 10 yrs of industry experience so I am looking for a good combination of the work and culture. Firms reputation is somewhat important in case I want to go back to industry but not my main decision driver.

Definitely Tier 2. If you had to double click, it would stand out on digital influenced work, which sounds cool, just like how OW used to stand out in risk influenced work. Prob “bottom” of T2 but that’s only because the other T2s have been playing longer (ATK, deloitte s&a), Pay better (parthenon, S&), or do both (OW, lek).

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
