Half in jest.
- BCG. Because we're not McK.
- D. Because they're not MBB.
- Bain. Because of acquisition potential
- McK. Because NYT and DOJ.

Shots fired. Flame suit on.

@SA3 You sound really insecure. I’ve worked on ops related projects. I don’t do anything close to implementation, but I don’t mind throwing out a few bullet points on how a company can reduce costs and operate more efficiently. That’s MC. Most FFG projects will have some level of MC.

Unless you mean a PwC MC project...

Can’t believe few mentions - but on a personal level, it’s easily McKinsey. No other firm has nearly as high a proportion of employees so desperate for external acknowledgement of their value.
That said, clients dig it, as it empowers them.

Humble and Insecure/ craving external validation are by no means mutually exclusive
