Really depends on market. I’m sure people in Chicago and Seattle have heard of them. Other markets, probably not.

Surprised no one has mentioned tech. M&A diligence work. It’s probably our bread and butter. Leads to a lot of our other projects.

Agreed. Having recently joined WMP it’s clear that the M&A capabilities far outstrip B4 for middle-upper market PE, but lose to B4 on large strategics and mega deals.

All of this talk about the prestige of the Big 4, one thing we don’t do is force our consultants to stay at the client office until 10pm every night for “optics”. I love it at WMP and we do great work.

Semantics, perhaps, but none of us have "contracts". And most of your career expectations arent written in your employment agreement either. You are expected to meet the requirements and norms of the role, which includes being in the office on Fridays as part of contributing to culture. It goes toward the stewardship, or maybe fellowship, or companionship, or whatever part of the review.

Other consultants view WMP as less impressive than big 4 and the like. Little name recognition among most corporate recruiters.

Found out my role model (female / nyc office) is leaving bcg. I know people leave all the time - but I’m feeling a bit lost with this move. Thought she’d stay, loved how she approached the job. Sucks.
