Hi! I'll soon begin applying to consulting firms (currently networking and learning more). I've been doing a lot of research and I know the factual differences between MBB/2nd Tier/Boutique/In-house firms (I'm applying in Germany-my German skills are good, but not yet client-ready/polished), however I'd like to ask if anyone had any thoughts on the benefits of working for a boutique or in-house consultancy, as those are the two I'm least familiar with.
I am aiming for MBB but I don't plan to put all my eggs in one basket so I'd like to look at other options -- I would also like to possibly get in some interview practice at the firms I'm less interested in before interviewing with MBB, so of course it would be benefical to know some of the positives of working in these other environments.
I'm only looking into firms/boutiques/in-house which have an international presence, even if it's a small one. Thanks to anyone who has any thoughts on this topic :)
