I’m new to consulting and interested in learning more about pros/cons of different firms. Work/life balance, bonus and raises, opportunity for growth, which ones are up or out and which aren’t... just curious in learning more about the consulting world

Basically none of them are worth your time except MBB or maybe T2. Pretty much every other firm has you working more hours and making less than top paying industry jobs.

That’s a whole other question that will depend on who you ask. Basically some combination of B4 strategy arms, OW, ATK, LEK, Alix, A&M, ACN strat, ZS, and maybe 1-2 other places.

Slalom is best for work life balance but they only hire those at the Sr. consultant level from T2 firms.

Accenture is great for a tech consulting focus. Deloitte has a good reputation as well. But Accenture and deloitte have no WLB though.

Disagree, I have WLB at Deloitte and I’m a top performer. All depends on how you set boundaries and manage expectations on your project. Can be difficult, but very possible to accomplish
