Plenty of Ivy / M7 at EY Parthenon. I recruit at an Ivy and my sense is the people we get are ones who didn’t get MBB offers. Used to recruit a different M7 when in MBB and the candidates don’t really feel all that different TBH. As a vet I recruit vets, so maybe that’s a factor.

Decent amount here; I’d say ~10-15%. They’re mainly people who wanted to do consulting but didn’t get the MBB offer. They’re either low gpa but smart (couldn’t pass the gpa bar to get an interview at MBB) or high gpa but not case polished (got rejected in the MBB interview stage). Most leave after 2 years for greener pastures because their undergrad school gives them a big boost in job searching relative to their non-Ivy peers.

I’m not quoting any database. This is just my personal experience and estimates.

There are quite a few Ivy/etc at EY within FSO, myself included. Joined as an experienced hire since I never considered consulting as a career path coming out of school and didn’t interview for it. I was never drawn to strategy consulting since I wanted to build tangible things and didn’t know implementation consulting was a thing. It’s a mixed bag school-wise here - for example, around a quarter of my broader project team went to Ivy/etc, another quarter excellent but next tier schools (Georgetown/ND/etc), another quarter state schools, then the remainder places you’ve never heard of. Haven’t really noticed any correlation between school and performance so far.

Hey all, I’ve recently joined EY consulting from another Big 4 and have noticed there’s no discipline (at least in my team) around codes and charging time. People either charge a standard 7 hrs or some will charge time spent on internal activities to their client code. I was told that “the last person to charge their actual hours worked was promptly booted off the project”. Just wondering: 1) Is this a general cultural point accross all Consulting teams? Will challengin this get me in trouble?
