Overall they are quite similar but OW usually stronger in the Financial Services sector. That being said, I would really choose between the two based on the impression you get from the people in the office you are applying.

They're very similar, however OW is generally better than ATK across a range of criteria. All that being said, if you're picking between the two, go for the one where you genuinely feel like you connect better with the people, are most similar to the culture, and feel you will be mentored / grown the best!

Overall Ranking: Oliver Wyman (#5 vs ATK at #9)

Total Revenue: Oliver Wyman ($2B vs ATK at $1.4B)

Global Prestige: Equal Ranking

Employee Satisfaction: Oliver Wyman (#5 vs ATK at #12

Europe Prestige: Oliver Wyman (#4 vs ATK at #6)

Asia Prestige: Oliver Wyman (#5 vs ATK at #6)

Overall they are similar.

But for specific region/office, the industry focus and office culture could be different. On industry focus, you can uausally find out from their website. On culture, talk to people from the specific region/office, and you'll get a feel.

I would not agree with that they are similar, particularly when it comes to prestige & perception. Altough they have things in common (focus on banking, supply chain, etc.), salary & culture and not the same.

Furthermore, woth comparing specific job offers to have apples to apples.
