Strategy& vs. Roland Berger in London

Anonym A fragte am 2. Apr 2017 - 2 Antworten

I received an offer from both Strategy& and Roland Berger in London.

How do they both rank compared to MBB?

Does anyone have experience with either and could give me some input to facilitate my decision?

I would highly appreciate it!

Congratulations, both are fine companies!

First, quick caveat: I am a former BCG consultant, from Europe but with consultant experience in the US only.

I would rank both as below MBB, but fairly close - probably #4 and #5 in Europe. My semi-educated guess would be to put Roland Berger ahead of Strategy& in Europe, but reverse this ranking in the US.

Which one to choose? Truthfully, the actual rank and reputation doesn't matter since they are very solid consultancy shops and recognized as such in the UK. I will assume both offices are quite large since in London, so both probably have a number of partners specializing in all the big verticals. If you think of moving to the States, small nod to Strategy&. If not, focus on where you felt best, which people you met and liked most...

One thing most people don't realize is that where you go to school doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things - and which consultancy you join doesn't really matter much either. A few years post consulting, you would be hard pressed to figure out which of Consultant#1 and Consultant#2 went to MBB vs. RB/Strategy&. Just follow your heart, you will do great. Ah, and congrats again :)

Hi Anonymous,

in addition to what Guennael already mentioned, 2 points to keep in mind:

- Roland Berger has repeatetly gone though financial difficutlies; For now they're good, but likely only due to the great overall economic situation. Major weakness: Almost no presence in the US and sub-scale overall

- Strategy& is now a part of PWC. While Strategy& liked to see themselves up with MBB & Berger, they are now being merged with PWC advisory (where, e.g., slaries are much lower than at MBB)

But overall I agree - follow your heart

Which companies are currently using written tests ?

All major firms like McKinsey, BCG and Bain use tests to assess a candidate's analytical skills. However the design of those tests can differ a lot.
