As someone who just watched 20 people get laid off in one day... I’d go small independent.

Depends on the account/agency I'd say. I came from a small independent shop that laid off 25% of the employees (I was one of them) after losing one account.

Really depends on what you want and where you are in your career. The big agency with top clients can help propel your career forward. That’s not to say that you can’t advance your career at a small shop with less well known clients but it might take longer. At the small shop you might be happier and have better hours.

You’ll probably work for both eventually.

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.

Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
