Advise offers, exit opps, brand, CV push

Anonymous A asked on Sep 17, 2019 - 3 answers

Hi everyone,

i've got to decide between a couple of offers after working as a consultant for two years.

- Accenture Strategy (M&A department)
- L.E.K. Consulting
- PWC Transaction Services
- Oliver Wyman

I'm asking myself what would be the best option to strengthen my CV in terms of brand, exit opportunities (funds, large banks) and reputation towards pursuing a top MBA application (Chicago, Oxford, Wharton, etc.)

What's your opinion and experience on that?

Many thanks in advance.

I would agree that OW has a stronger reputation worldwide, but also LEK is quite strong especially in the UK.

I may be biased as I work for the firm, but definetely go for OW.
I think it is fair to say that among your 4 options OW has the strongest brand name, quickest career path, and sponsors MBA.

LEK may be the closest, depending on industry (they are strong in DD and Life Sciences.
