What chain is your company? I'll start: ZS is In-N-Out.
Quality for a good price. Specialized, narrow focus. Careful about expanding. People hear good things, but most have no experience with us 🤣

Booz Allen Hamilton is McDonalds.

We were a pioneer, but now our menu is a bloated mess. Our backers (partners at HQ) have some good ideas but the franchisees (partners in the geographies) hate them and our customers just want fast and cheap.

But we're still really good at fries; you can't beat our fries (Cyber), and trying new things to varying degrees of success (MENA GMC is our McCafe).

I will talk about the health account in the same breath as I talk about the Quarter Pounder with Cheese. It's still on the menu.

Let me preface this by saying I know very little about KPMG and their work other than the people seem happy, but KPGM seems cool.

I feel like they're like Dairy Queen, because I know very little about Dairy Queen and their food other than they have ice cream, but Dairy Queen seems cool.

McK: Chipotle. Well known. Filling. Expensive. From time to time causes indigestion and controversies.

likefunnyuplifting

Chipotle doesn’t really seem any more expensive than most other places. McK seems more like Five Guys: 40% more expensive than fast food but only 10% better.

Deloitte is DEFINITELY Wendy's.

We are still sh*tty fast food, but we really try to convince people that we are the least sh*tty, worth the extra money, and not the same as the other guys with their round frozen burgers. We say we are wholesome, care about families and all natural ingredients... But at the end of the day you're still eating mystery meat, it's just square.

Accenture is Cheesecake Factory. We’ve got a giant menu but most of it neither particularly good nor bad. The only thing we truly excel at is Cheesecake (i.e. system implementations)

PwC is an airport Panera. We’ve gone so digital that we don’t have any cashiers helping customers figure out how to use the kiosks and the prices are even higher than a regular Panera

Definitely think Bain is Panera. Expensive for fast food - good quality and loved by the upper middle and upper classes.

Outback Steakhouse: it has the presumed offering right there in the name, but if I really wanted a solid filet I’d go to Ruth’s Chris

likefunnysmart

A Ruth’s Chris sous-chef once told me the best way to determine the doneness of a steak was the thumb-pad method. Not sure what the parallel McK advice is for that...Seek competitive advantage via Porter’s forces analysis? Not really a good method and probably going to lead to suboptimal results?
