Erm, ok.

So, you never quite understood why b4 and Accenture gets hired for strategy work. It's for their pull- through capability enabling the realization of the strategy that they develop. It's also a reason their strategies are more implementable and they provide tactical means to reach the end-state. Try this out at your new firm and you'll know why the B4 and Accenture are here to stay in the strategy world!

Possibly! But they’re part of the culture and you have to take culture into account. Otherwise you’d risk losing a large portion of the force constantly being poached by other companies.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.
