Accenture is big in Seattle. PM if you want referral

Not sure about the others but we don’t have a SEA office 😢

Bain does, it’s small though

Some of these don't have a Seattle office unfortunately (and if they do, they tend to be smaller).

The t2 firms this app loves to argue about have no Seattle based offices (Lek k eyp ow). It’s pretty much mbb b4 acn and slalom

Seattle consulting is mainly with the big tech companies. Accenture Interactive has a decent office there also. Interviewing atm.

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

I’m convinced 70% of MBBs revenue comes from the healthcare & financial services sector, and less of the exciting TMT work the rest of industry is heading (ex FAANG). Can any of y’all say you have greater than 30% REV here? Feel most blue chip clients have ex-MBB Corp dev teams in house by now...
