MD as in a doctor? Not sure that changes which firm you apply to. BCG is always a good option :-)

I recently had a counselee who was an MD. He didn't last because he lacked basic consulting skills. PPT, Excel, executive presence, problem solving, etc. He kept getting rolled off projects because he couldn't keep up, and he was hired in at a high salary, so he got laid off when his chargeability dropped. He thought he was just going to offer his opinions on healthcare, but that isn't consulting. OP, you should explain the actual work to your friend.

Physician? Internal/ family medicine?

EY is a good option as well

Not a practicing doctor that sees patients regularly. Works in pharma running clinical research for drug companies. BCG1 referral? Ill drop a burner if so

Def don't think Accenture is the right firm bc she's not leaning towards tech or even health tech

Ey referral ? I will even let you keep 50 percent of the referral money

It is a win win

I tried twice to refer someone I didn't really know. Colossal waste of time for everyone involved.

I agree with EY1 our bonuses are class leading.

Boutique healthcare firms might be a good fit. We have a handful of MDs on staff but they don't last long because they don't really get consulting. Great asset when pitching a project and showing team bios.

Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.
