With that said PwC is likely the McKinsey of the firm’s...seems to me the most prestigious

I think this should be less qualitative and more quantitative. Let’s break them down by count of scandals / government fines and then match them up

They don’t really equate. Big 4 do not shy away from any professional service which is why they rode the IT wave and started raking billions in consulting business. Big 3 tried to stay elite and didn’t do much IT and probably later on learned that they will become irrelevant if they do not adapt to technology business. This is the reason BCG and McKinsey came up with their technology arms. In long term, I believe Big 4 will dominate.

lol Accenture? I am shorting ACN tmr. it's overpriced and riding it down to 13.75 low made back in 2007

Pwc/McK (kinda snooty), Bain/Deloitte (v bro-y), BCG and... EY?

Homie you should have just posted with your title for this one🤣

funny

As a client and recipient of services here is my take - only 3 leagues - Mckinsey, BCG and D are the only ones that matter...difference of rate card and expertise.....if you assume rate card is equal I will go with McKinsey/BCG for content and strategy and D for execution (but really depends on the team need to scrutinize and press for value)

OP come on man, you already know the answer to the second question based on all the consulting meme pages

McK=Deloitte BCG=Deloitte Bain=Deloitte By B4 you mean Big D, right? 🤣

Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)
