In the US, how does the exit opportunities at boutique strategy firms compare to that of the Tier 3 (or 4 if the Big 4 takes a tier) firms? For example: Marakon / OC&C / Putnam / Mars compare to Capgemini Invent / Accenture consulting I feel like the latter have better name recognition in the US but I have no clue about exit opps Edit 1: I’d like to know the exit opp in general, not industry-specific exit opps

It depends on your exit. Accenture would probably do better for anything tech related than big 4

Not really - most awareness is around market leaders, especially in tech

Go Accenture. Not question about it.

Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?

Hey all! I was told I might get help here! I got an offer at a mid pharma for a strategy role that I’m intending to take. Partner is threatening to sue because the job offer is from a direct client that I work with. I’ve received legal counsel and have no apparent liabilities in any of my or my clients contracts (non-compete, non-solicitation, etc.). Unfortunately, that doesn’t prevent me from getting sued because I still have to defend it. Has anyone else ever been in a similar situation?

Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work.

Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
