People from other firms throw mad shade at Accenture, sometimes quite warranted, but every firm (especially MBB) has been pushing hard to build up their IT services/tech consulting side for a while now. I guess clients can't just google their way through massive implementations the same way they can download fancy slides.

The work MBB do in this space is very different to Accenture/Big 4. I worked for Accenture before my MBA so can confirm this

Accenture is just another Indian Firm - they're living off their pre-IPO legacy but it's fading quickly with their lack of front end quality

Such a dumb comment. ACN is showing how the game is played. A public company in this space is revolutionary and they are on a great trajectory of growth..

Utilize MBB services and then you will know the difference. They set the gold standard of being C-suite therapists.

OP, I think a lot of is banter. It’s very clear Accenture have their niche and as much as McKinsey and other firms have built up some IT capabilities it’s still a different value prop. There is enough to go around.

Fair point, wrong choice of words. Specialty would be more appropriate.

Part of maintaining 'elite class' status is to continue to throw said 'mad shade' at the supposed plebeians. There's no hard feelings, it's just what it is even though the capabilities you talk about may not match up or are likely different products.

Need help negotiating a sign-on bonus. This is difficult for me. I got an offer and I knew what the salary would be because they told me what the pay band was before I interviewed and I’m at the top of the band so no negotiation there. Before I accept the offer I’d like to negotiate a sign-on bonus because 1) I was sourced via an internal recruiter so they aren’t paying a recruiter fee and 2) I’m leaving my current company and if I stayed would get a $30k annual bonus in March.

Partners/Associates. How does someone balance the fine line between sending follow up networking emails to people who did not respond to the first networking email (sent pre-pandemic)?
