Underrated: not sure
Overated: ACN - just my personal opinion, ACN holds the weight that it does purly because of its size...

Also side note, I don't think IBM should be included here. Yes they have consulting services, but they're a product company.

Would love to hear any opinions / counters on this^

I mean sure, but their consulting arm still pulled in more revenue in FY18 than any of the Big 4 (they were in a dead heat with Deloitte).

Don’t see how you can exclude them

IBM is super underrated. I’m at OW and some of my rockstar colleagues came from IBM. They’re not a strategy shop but they do literally everything in the consulting arena. Comp isn’t great and some things aren’t well structured as they are at other firms, from what I hear, but a solid company nonetheless.

If I had to guess, most people are going to say the firm they work for is the most underrated, and the most overrated is who they think their biggest competitor is.

Cheer up up SC2. According to Big Blue’s GAAP-adjusted comp formula, you’re paid more than a Mckinsey partner. 🤣

Smaller firms can be great at very specific topics, e.g. healthcare/pharma DDs for LEK... it’s all about finding the right consultancy team for the specific problem at hand.
