Deloitte is seen as a competitor for anything digital. EY has good finance specialists. Rarely do I see them as competition. We work with CEOs of companies.

OP: apparently they care enough to respond to your post.

We really don’t think of you at all. Like I’ve had less than 5 work conversations regarding the Big 4 in my four years of MBB

I respect BCG thought process and don’t want to alter it before acquisition 😀😀😀

This ☝️- only sane response on the thread PS- Seriously OP doesn’t effing matter. Stop the comparisons in your head. I’m sure some teams in b4 might have better projects than some at MBB. And overall we are diff kind of orgs. It’s silly to compare imho.

That's right ! MBBs only sell pipe dreams - which makes some C suite feel important/ soothe egos. Real execution is beyond them - so why even think ?

They're a bit better than Havard.

As part of MBAB we think about B4 a lot. Hope this helps make your day better OP

Honestly couldn’t care less what MBB thinks of us. It’s a totally different type of consulting.

Based on the MBB decks I’ve read/been responsible for implementing... no they do not.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
