What is the best consulting firm for public service work? I’ve been at Accenture for a year now since graduating college. To me, the compensation seems very competitive, and there are a fair number of PS clients, but I don’t know how it compares to other firms. Wondering what else is out there in the way of public service/impact consulting.

The government really doesn’t do much pure strategy work. When the leadership of an organization is hired for their political connections, building a “strategy” is wholly dependent on the whims of the party in power, and subject to inevitable changes in direction every 2-4 years.

Guidehouse is up there. They are exclusively PS.

False (we are 50/50).

If you're looking at federal, BAH and Deloitte are the biggest players there.

There are so many firms in the public sector. When you look at a single agency they may have multiple consulting firms on a single engagement.

But yes avoid staff augmentation.

You need to define “best” before we can help you.
Comp? Bcg/McK
Big? Acc/D/BAH
Then there’s tons of variation as you specialize within a skill set or client base
