Recieved an offer for Strategy & Consulting in NYC for Publicis Sapient and not sure what to make of the opportunity? I've heard great things about them and that they have an all MBB leadership team. Looking to make the jump to strategy and was wondering what their rep (hard to find a lot of info) is and if it looks like a good jump?

From what I’ve heard they’re solid! Not the same prestige as MBB, but they’re a legit strat shop. If you want to do strategy, I’d accept cause we all know that you won’t be doing a whole lot of true strat work here. Keep in mind, your experience will depend on the teams you work with and the project leadership

It depends on your bands, but I’d say mid to low T2 or the top of T3. If you don’t have a MBB or bust attitude, I think you’ll have a great experience with a strong firm

Proceed, but keep your eyes very open and very cautious. DM if you want.

It'd a worthwhile opportunity, coming from Protiviti. DM me if you'd like an insiders POV.

Is your offer in the Management Consulting practice? As that is where the ex-MBB folks are. The general Strategy and Consulting practice is a different caliber and no legacy MBB.

Both groups do cases

After your first job, how relevant is GPA. For context, I went to a school that is very well known for grade deflation (Deloitte had a “suggested” minimum of 3.2 here) and I studied statistics, a particularly rough major at the school. Long story short, GPA was between a 2.9 and 3.0. This wasn’t due to slacking and I’ve done well at Deloitte so far with plenty of experience to speak to. Would my GPA still block me from certain firms, like any of the MBB firms or a Tier 2 consulting firm?
