I am a 23 year old with 2 years experience: one year in London working in Operational & Management Consulting and 1 year in Management Consulting for a small Romanian company (<10 employees). Degree in Mathematics with Business Management and quite a technical background (studied programming for 4 years and worked in graphic design for around 6 years).
I have received offers from EY, KPMG, Horvath and a small, uprising consulting company focusing on energy. The offers are similar from a financial standpoint, but I am unsure what I'd like to do with my future, whether I want to move to MBB down the line, so here are my questions:
- If indeed I'd like to move to MBB, which company would give me the best chance in terms of reputation, but relevant work as well? (not sure if writing meeting minutes will be considered very relevant)
- Would specialising this early in my career (i.e. choosing the energy-focused consulting) limit my opportunities long-term?
- I know Hovarth is well-known in DACH, but unsure what reputation they have in the rest of Europe? Couldn't find much in terms of work quality, is it safe to assume they are similar to Tier 2 (ATK, RB) or they should be separated due to the focus on Controlling?
Need to take a decision very soon, so any advice/opinion would be much appreciated.
