IMO, prestige is relative, but most consider strategy to be the most prestigious form of consulting and tech consulting/implementation to be the least prestigious form of consulting.

Think of which area the two firm's truly specializes in and you should be able to answer the question yourself.

Lol - like I said, prestige is relative, but there are definitely generalizations/stigmas out there.

You have to look at perspective - A.T. Kearny has ~3500 people globally - so their solutions are going to be more specific and focused.

Accenture has 450,000 people. It’s like ants. They are everywhere. Accenture will get more at bats than most others just due to having people in most accounts. If I had 450,000 people helping me farm accounts - life would be so much easier.

Accenture’s consulting practice is third tier at best, and filled with aggressive wannabes with inferiority complexes who have no real subject matter expertise and can’t cut it anywhere else.

Does prestige matter that much? You’re definitely not going to be in the poor house if you have a career at either one.

Ya - SC1 is all over this thread desperately trying to defend the idea that ACN is the same as MBB, ATK, LEK etc. Having worked across three different firms (big 4, ATK, and MBB) they are NOT the same, talent is different, and on average exit opp are in the order you would expect them to be. However - at the end of the day I’m not sure it matters - so you be you SC1

You should be comparing ATK to Accenture Strategy not Accenture Consulting. ACN Strat is a no joke tier 2 shop. Swear I’m not just drinking the kool-aid

SC1, the fact that you have to explain it in the way you do kills me. I think most of the commenters are messing with you.

While there are exceptions for people, projects, and industries I would say in general ATK

Do you see Associates from ATK actively trying to move to ACN? I’ve only seen the opposite with lots of ACN people (including ACN Strat) trying to move to Tier 2 or MBB.

Maybe that’s because you have never worked for Accenture?

ATK doesn’t have the same struggles with branding that ACN Strat does. That alone helps the prestige

but too bad nobody’s heard of them :(

Curious if anyone else is or has been in the same boat. I started as an assistant at an entertainment law firm prior to passing the bar. Upon passing, the partner told me they would hire an assistant for me since I now became an associate. That was 1.5 years ago and I am still in the limbo of juggling my own workload + doing assistant roles for my supervisors. I have also had no increase in pay, which is a huge deal for me. Is this normal in the entertainment world? Any suggestions?

Time, space and solitude, as medicine. 🙏
