Well, they do pay well. And AP consultants I've met carry themselves with that cliche McK aloofness.

Interesting. But is a recent trend?

Wonder if AP able to pull off better rates given seniority of people? Thin senior level pyramid?

Soon gonna be MABB

They pay better and have better growth which opens doors for promotion.

BCG1 what type of firm did your friend come from? Big4 type, tier 2 or MBB or a boutique? How does he or she like it? Weighing an offer from there right now.
