Yeah there have been some periodically. Biggest client is probably Merck. Also Heineken, some detergent brands, Cotton, etc. I would say I don't hate working there, decent work life balance for me. The projects could be better though. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..
