Capgemini Invent vs KPMG Strategy Group

Harry asked on Jul 28, 2019 - 1 answer

Hi,

I have recently been offered jobs at two companies: Capgemini Invent (Insights Driven Enterprise Department) and KPMG (Strategy Group). The Capgemini offer focuses on digital strategy and brings technology, data anaytics and technology together under the strategy hat. The company seems to be growing very fast. The KPMG offer is perhaps more reputable and has a "general", less specialised strategy line surrounding growth, turnaround, equity carveouts and M&As. Obviously, these offers differentiate themselves professionally, but I was wondering if anyone could give me information on the reputation, working style, opportunities and strategy abilities of these companies, preferrably from people who have worked in either of these departments. Which job do you think is better for a future career in strategy consultancy?

Thanks a lot for your input.

Hi, this answer is for Shane. Apparently you can no longer write personal messages without a pro account so I will answer your question to which one I chose here: — Harry on Sep 29, 2019

In the end I chose KPMG Strategy Group as the group seemed to have more of a pure strategy focus in many different sectors. (Furthermore, it pays overtime which is unheard of in consulting and I was offered a higher position.) Until now, I can confirm that the KPMG Strategy Group was a great choice. They are active in many commercial (due diligence) and operational (integration / separation) topics across a wide range of industries and the projects are strategy-based and extremely interesting — Harry on Sep 29, 2019

As for Capgemini, I unfortunately can't give you any further information as I didn't accept the job. I can however say that they have a top reputation for digital strategy. I'm sure whatever you take, it will be a great next step in your career! — Harry on Sep 29, 2019
