If the people you interviewed with were great then I think that addresses your question about making it hard to recruit good teams. Everyone I’ve worked with seems very motivated and professional and brings something to the table from their pre consulting life. My experience has only been pretty interesting projects and deals

Saying KPMG Strategy has no brand is a blanket statement, in my opinion. Instead, I see that KPMG is still in the process of re-building their strategy group, and there will be a lot of opportunities for you to make a difference within the firm, meaning better partner/principal track.

Out of curiosity what did they offer?

The people I knew who interviewed at other shops (other B4 strategy, Accenture strategy, etc.) and chose KPMG instead told me KPMG was offering more, which makes sense because KPMG strategy is growing 20-30% YOY
