What are the differences between the Big 4 Human Capital practices? Which is best and why?

Honestly if you want to go to another firm and you are like me and aren’t cut out for MBB (didn’t go to a fancy enough school), you may want to look at OW/Marsh. I believe Gartner ranks HC consulting firms.

I wish deloitte wasn’t the best bc i want to go somewhere else but it is. Accenture is maybe second bc they have an actual consulting practice. EY and pwc’s and kpmg’s are a mess bc half their work is under tax half is under advisory and 70% of their stuff is just change management.

You’re welcome! Thank you for asking!

Seconded d1, i also want to try something different, but literally everyone knows and accepts D has some of the best HC work, I’m thinking of trying Accenture and boomeranging back to D

Got a McK interview, practiced like never before, failed the final round due to anxity/casing eff ups. Although I failed, gained lot of confidence and have been flying thru tier 2/b4 interviews since.
