What are some of the best consulting firms for a software engineer? Is MBB still considered elite in this area too?

I'd imagine consulting in general is not *particularly elite for a software developer

Not for software engineering. You’d do well sticking to the traditional ones like FAAMNG. Unless your goal isn’t to be a SWE but an actual consultant using your knowledge base. But even then MBB is primarily strategy, not implementation

MBB are starting to take on implementation work. Mck/BCG have decent developer jobs, but we are not elite (not sure what Bain is doing here). You will be paid better, treated better, and more marketable at big tech.

Incidentally, BCG has a wonderful design house (MAYA), but that isn't really what you're asking.

I guess I’m thinking/asking more in terms of exit opportunities to big tech. I’ve had Amazon reach out but unfortunately didn’t do well in the interview... I haven’t had any other big tech or even mid tech companies reach out though. This was all before Covid so all bets are off now

The employee spent their own money to make this, and to boot is a single mom.
