in terms of quality of people I know...
tier 1: deloitte, accenture
tier 2: ey/ibm/guidehouse
tier 3: all the soulless defense contractors
tier 4: kpmg/every other accounting firm trying to do consulting
tier 5: mitre

Tier 1: Booz Allen Hamilton, Lockheed Martin , tier 2: Accenture, MITRE
Tier 3: big D

It really does! Worst branding ever. Like a free service offered by the municipality to get the homeless back on their feet

funny

Depends on what we are talking. Cyber? Booz, NG, then AFS, then D. Finance: d, GH, KPMG, EY above all. IT O&M: Booz. Intel analysis: Booz. A&D: Lockheed and NG

Could go on and on.

If we are only talking prestige and just “management consulting": D, AFS are tier 1. GH, others big4 are 2. Rest are 3 or worse

Deloitte and Guidehouse and any other big four are at the very bottom. The stars of the show in federal are Booz, Leidos, Lockheed, and MITRE

funny

NG?

like

Booz is big. In many places they are good. In many places they are charging way less than consulting firms. I was there and left for greener pastures including comp and benefits. That alone speaks for something

like

I spent 3.5 years at Booz and recently left for Deloitte. From my short time at Deloitte, I can tell that Booz has more experienced former federal/military folks that have a deep understanding of the practice. Again, from my short experience at D, Booz has much more interesting national security related work.

Booz is same tier with Deloitte and Accenture in the Federal space. Believe Lockheed is actually ahead of them both. Vault had actual rankings year after year, look it up.

funny

yea but I already gave my own rankings

Huge diffrrence between MITRE in MA and MITRE in VA. For systems work is out MITRE VA with Booz at the top, but MITRE VA, near the bottom.
