Higher-powered internal corporate strategy groups managing their own P&Ls

As someone who is in one of those internal corporate strategy teams, I have looked at old decks from MBB, replied “really?” to my manager, and then did better work to make them moot going forward.

Deloitte. Obviously.

Thx for the quick response

The biggest competition would be capable clients who can do consulting work in house

Non sarcastic answer - I feel it depends on the specific work and industry? Strategy or growth strategy in lifesciences? Might be ZS/clear view. DD could be S& Just my guesses...

Deloitte generally. Niche in certain industries (e.g., PIP in metals and mining, ZS in pharma)

Deloitte is a competitor. Not a threatening one clearly lol. Only reason people are just laughing because it’s fun to make fun of Deloitte on this app

Honestly, whenever we discuss competition we only ever discuss McK and Bain, mostly McK. It’s dumb as we are also playing in implementation space but we still don’t think D etc as our competition (duh). We never consider S& or anyone else as competition in strategy, and Bain only a little (I’m looking at joining Bain so this makes me a bit anxious)

I’ve seen them winning quite a bit of strategy work tho, perhaps this is industry specific

All the big 4 win work in RFPs that have MBB in the mix. What might be an acceptable margin to a big 4 firm might be unacceptable to MBB

It depends. For integration at departmental level, sometimes it’s hard to beat big 4 and small shops’ prices

It’s kind of like credit rating where it’s dominated by moodys and s&p but often they hire a tier 2 for a second opinion since they’re a lot cheaper

We compete in pricing, packaging, and sales strategy with BCG and some PE DD with Bain/LEK in my experience
