Yes, BCG does a lot of projects in digital. But this isn’t tech implementation work (think SAP), but app dev & launch, digital business build, and process digitisation.

MBB doesn’t mean pure strategy / due diligence. There’s a good mix of growth strategy, due diligence (this isn’t the same as strategy), business build, transformation, and digital. Bain’s work is skewed a bit towards DDs, but McK and BCG are playing all across the field.

But does having experience of such digital projects help in transitioning to PE/VC ? I imagine someone with due diligence projects would have a better chance at switching to PE/VC

No company today is pure strategy- not anymore.. can you imagine life without internet? More appropriately professional life without internet and all the other devices?? All companies of size enough now have some or the other tech component involved- they either have it internally or hire contractors or other firms to get it done..

I think one of the major causes of the horrible pay and benefits of B4 is the oligopoly that exists. Not yet saying the B4 should be broken up, but lack of competition allows shafting of both customers AND employees.
