100% go. As someone at a boutique with partners from other elite consulting firms, it’s an awesome experience. You get to know them much better than my friends experiences at other firms. Very strong office culture. Less churn and burn. No brand new teams where you are making first Impressions, everybody knows everyone. And the compensation is definitely better !

The other firm is relatively unknown with very few employees (25ish). Partners all came from BCG, junior staff all from Ivies (undergrad and MBA). Should I sacrifice brand for more visibility & better work?
