According to these imperceptive definitions, I'm working for a tier-6 or even tier-7 firm and adding "low" value 🤦 I'm not gonna brag about my work, but while many of so-called top tier consultants continously complain spending their time customizing/fixing slides, not having meaning in their jobs, my team is delivering real work from the ground up, solving real problems and thus helping people, and keep our customers coming back for different projects. My point is the world is not as small as your (or whoever created this) knowledge or perception base.

Yo SC2 this is dope work, can you possibly share a bit more about where you’re at / how you got into that line of work?

When you guys defer to Big4 + Accenture are you always referring to their strategy capabilities?
As I used to work for Capgemini (not strategy) in the UK and the stuff we worked on loads of projects and programmes alongside Big4 + Accenture. So I dont really get the comparison that often gets made saying Capgemini and similar consultancies provide low value work when they are delivering much the same as the Big4.

It's an accurate ranking of firms by prestige.

As you can tell from the comments, some people don't think prestige is a very important factor- there are certainly other things to consider (salary, culture, work-life balance, etc etc) That's fair, it's just not what this list is about.

Capco is tier 6? Based on their comments they definitely feel like 16! I mean not tier 16, more like how I sounded when I was 16.

There are garbage people everywhere and top performers everywhere. I understand that this is the mean, but don’t let it govern your decision-making. I currently work for a lower tier firm because they paid me a ton to join and give me absolutely incredible work that would rival MBB. If I’d stayed at my other firm, I would have seen the same pay, career progression, or quality of work. Challenge is that you may be comparably stronger, but hiring managers absolutely bias the above.

So with 60 days Military PTO, a pretty healthy vacation policy, good benefits overall and from what I am perceiving as a pretty damn good career path, almost like an Army officer career path, is this consulting career actually a pretty good gig? I mean, it seems like you can do just about whatever you want in Accenture, even if “consulting,” isn’t the path you want to go down long term. Are these people wining about comp, hours, and projects, just clueless to what the real world is like, and how much Military hours and “projects” can be? I don’t know I just feel like this is like the civilian equivalent to the Military, and not in a bad way, thoughts?
