ZS vs OW vs. LEK? Which is the most prestigious/has the best exit ops/best culture/work life balance/etc

They’re all great firms. If you’re really set on prestige, you only have one option: Deloitte

funnylikehelpful

Broadly speaking I would say OW is a step above but all three are good firms and each is strongest of the three in the space where they focus. Can’t go wrong. See where you feel you fit best

I’ve seen LEK’s work and met a few people. They do high quality strategy, due-diligence, BD type work but no where close to our collective capabilities across especially life sciences industry. If you are passionate about life sciences/pharma and would like to get exposed to variety of functional areas I would choose ZS. OW plays but again much more niche than us.

Can only speak to ZS. Our culture is solid and is one of the main reasons I've stayed for so long vs. jumping to another firm I've interviewed for. Work life balance is ok - avg billable is 50 hrs a week for me (senior second level/junior third level up). We only travel local (if at all) so you won't find many people doing the whole Monday - Thursday client site thing. All of our clients respect us for our expertise and partnership - but I've never actually seen OW/LEK at any of the 10 or so clients I've worked with - so not sure if we play in the same space. It could be just a fluke but I've run into Deloitte, PwC, etc. I do mostly marketing strategy work (primary MR, brand planning, competitive planning etc.)

I have "run into" ZS on a couple life science cases, each time they were reorganizing the sales force so the teams never interacted

I can’t help but feel this way, and as much as I love my company, I’m beginning to dislike the role. Maybe it’s an ‘ego’ thing? Anyone ever been in this position? How did you get over it?

Suggestions for a birthday gift for myself? My boyfriend has been asking for weeks & I keep saying nothing but he is not having it. I have a comfortable life & can’t think of anything other than a nice night out, which is already common in our relationship. I suggested a nice set of cookware because I enjoy cooking on our nights in but he jokes it’s a little too domestic. An engagement is already in the works so jewelry seems silly & I WFH so even high end shoes/bags can wait. Thoughts?

True workplace confession:

I have ghost-ticked a few procedures during the last two disaster-filled, soul-crushing audits I completed.

I’m sure I would’ve been able to produce the support necessary to back up the ghost-ticks, but hey, I was running out of time before the “deadlines” and these jobs were understaffed from the get go. Not to mention the client not being ready for us until a month into fieldwork when we had a budgeted fieldwork period of six weeks 🤷‍♂️
