This is a ridiculous question because prestige of your firm shouldn’t be your primary focus. But Deloitte S&O and S& definitely fall above OW and ATK. Many tech strategy gigs only look at MBB, S& and S&O.

MBB OW ATK B4 Strat Teams (Monitor, S&, Parthenon, K-Strat) ACN Strat IBM DS/iX

MBB S&O, S& ATK, OW, LEK, Parth Acn IBM Mcbee has the meme game in the bag tho

Depends on the group, function etc - other then MBB, and certain functions/industries in others for example OW in FS, ATK in procurement, ZS in pharmaceutical - it’s pretty similar

I would never take S& or Deloitte S&O over OW, but that’s just me.

Hi all! I’m talking to someone tomorrow on the team for a role I’m super keen on. Luckily enough (not sure If this is good timing) when I reached out to them a few weeks ago and confirmed the time for us to connect, a job in their area opened up a few days later. I’m super keen on trying to push my application and ask about the role (already applied but without a referral :() How would you approach the conversation? I’m a little intimidated since it’s at a hot tech company and they’re MBB.
