My client just asked me if I wanted to hear a joke. He said "Accenture" and walked away. Savage.

The only consultants I've ever met who have to put down other firms are from Deloitte.

To the offended Accenture personnel: lighten up. Every firm gets shit on no matter what. Every firm has great employees and terrible employees and every firm has great teams and bad teams. It's just how it is. Life is better when you can laugh at yourself.

I've heard variations on that, including making fun of another team in our firm to my team... Keep it classy, clients. The real joke is how much they're being billed for our services while they employ all if us.

Post-UG 🐟: I know that a lot of you are thinking about private equity as a potential next step. This app was helpful to me when I was thinking through careers and happy to answer questions on my experience. Quick background: target school -> 3 years of consulting -> 2 years of PE investing at a large firm; going to a startup next. Generally very happy that I did PE for the learning experience and comp but it does come with some downsides too (rigidity, unpredictable hours). AMA!
