MBB, it's getting lonely at the top for D.


The Trump Organization




I think you'll see tech and programming do away with a lot of the analytics consultants are relied upon for today. Whether the companies can build those skill sets and platforms fast enough to compete is the question.


Yeah my math shows that "~" means approximately. Anything more productive to add?


I wouldn't call intentionally posting false information "substantive." Maybe you could have posted a joke like "Slalom" instead?



If anything I think consolidation is in order - don't see any increase in competition for the top firms. McK and BCG too big to buy


I struggle with how few of the S&P Tech top 100 use external consultants. Will we continue to serve dinosaurs?

@ McK1 pretty much, tech attracts top talent into their internal consulting groups. They don't need external unless it's a niche service offer

All of us will just buy them

I say none. Bain is the only firm started within the past ~40 years to sustain >$2B in annual revenue and be a top ranked firm. This is because we are pretty awesome but mostly because this isn't an industry of upstarts to scale. Don't believe the partner hype.

Hey B&Co1: Better check your math. Bain was founded in 1973.

Learn how to accept feedback. Hope you aren't this defensive with clients!

Usually I don't open my mouth unless I have something substantive to say. Best to keep your foot in yours until that time comes.

Lol OP. '73 was 44 years ago. ~40 (aka approximately) is more than appropriate.

I'm trying to suss out if a new member of our dept hates me or my team (she manages a different team).

My initial take is she's just hard to read and probably a tightly controlled introvert. My direct report felt she's 'cold as ice,' 'bristling' at our suggestions, and forming a clique that wants to do their own thing with no input from our team. He's triggered very easily, and there was no explicit evidence, just a 'vibe' so I wrote it off. (See 1st comment)

I know my reasons but I’m curious if anyone has anything to say maybe I haven’t thought of that could be helpful for me to use, thank you!
