Digital Bowl

Would anyone be willing to chat about a referral to a Big 4 or MBB for Design/Innovation please? I have 5YOE and had an interview at BCGDV before Xmas but interested in other digital consulting arms..

Would not go to any MBB for design/innovation. It isn't really being done there the way you'd like as a service designer.

Hi BCG1 - are you in DV, as that’s a different concept all together imo. If not, could you please elaborate on your comment above? I’ve done service design in Consultancies and Agencies and noticed a stark difference from dedicated Service Design agencies in terms of approach and culture 🤔 curious as to what BCG Consulting (not DV) is like as always considered applying?

DV seemed nice and super smart. I don’t think it’s a good fit though because they’re effectively a startup that tries to make new startups and my experience is more in digital transformation more than venture creation. I’m used to solving existing problems and digging deep into user research to understand the actual needs and then designing great experiences across key touch points. I worry that DV doesn’t have enough of an anchor from loose client briefs and a lot of what the role I was headhunted for is in opportunity searching and desk research to compensate for that as opposed to designing a service that meets user needs. A good role in its own right, but it’s not what I’ve been doing so not where I can add value at a senior level. SC1, I think just talking this out has helped me realise, it’s not DV that I’m not a good fit for, it’s the role. My equivalent of their role would be an Experience Designer not a Strategic one 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️ Well, too late now 😪

I had a similar and bad experience interviewing with DV. Tbh they seem way in over their heads. I took a role at a smaller firm specializing in my SME and am super happy.

I didn’t go to a design firm - I went to a different consulting firm specializing in the industry I’m passionate about / experienced in. So I’m on a small design team but all projects are interesting to me. I passed on another BIG design firm because I felt they couldn’t promise that I could keep working in the area I liked fwiw

What did you think of DV @OP? They might be closest to what you seek, but I'm a bit bearish that they can keep things as they are.
