Great firm, highly analytical and more pure strategy with depth in some specific industries. Would say strategy > B4 but not sure how rapidly they are adjusting to digital disruption.

Though the 4 firms are considered the same tier, they don't compete that frequently. We compete with Parthenon on the some diligences and OW on some growth strategy, particularly in retail and far as I've seen. There is no overlap with what ATK does

For those who are in the know in consulting, probably behind MBB and above Big 4. Doubt the average Joe is aware of who they are. Have heard of brutal hours with a lot of DD engagements but smart group overall.

A1 is right. We do almost no ops and just pretend we do if clients force us into it

Almost exactly the same as Parthenon. Smaller than OW and ATK, but more strategy / DD focused than those firms

I think I’m getting overpaid by industry standards but probably at a steal for what they would pay an external consultant or a contractor to do the same job. Problem is I hate my job based on one bad apple. In looking for another job I’m so desperate that I’m willing to take a pretty substantial pay cut but I don’t want to revert to the unethical pay that the industry usually pays people. How do I say “I’m willing to negotiate but at the same time I’m not here to waste anyone’s time”?!

New manager at a Big 4, but I’ve been a consulting manager for a while. An SC on the team said they “refuse” to report to me because I’m new. Our partner told me to get this SC in line and that I have his full support- but he apparently never told her I was coming to join the team to manage her😬. How do I set this SC straight without totally squashing her spirits? For context, she wants to take on more management role and be my “peer” but she’s a brand new SC...she’s not close to being ready.
