This is most ridiculous question and I work for Deloitte ha ha... what is a ‘typical’ engagement like? They do the same stuff as we do in S&O, they just get paid more and often times do more in the C-Suite than the functional level. That’s my two cents base on my experience and friends at MBB.

That’s not average big4 though you’re just on a PMO project

Get out of your head that there are mystical engagements. The “MBB” does the same things we all do.

I think everyone has answered, there is no typical project. The amount our work overlaps probably also depends on which areas you work in. I haven’t done one PMO, implementation/transformation, or cost side project since I joined, that doesn’t mean we don’t do that type of work, though. I got looped into to a pretty awesome partner group early on that has allowed me to primarily do big growth strategy projects with c suite. There are probably people at D who are similar.

Thanks everyone, but can someone from MBB chime in on OP’s question?

Solve hard problems. Get paid more.

No typical project from content side. But average team size is 3-4 not including partners
