Monitor and Accenture Strategy - Tier 3?

Anonymous A

Hello Experts and Community,

Any thoughts about the Perception and Exit opportunities of Monitor Deloitte and Accenture Strategy in Europe vs the Middle East? Also, which firms are considered Tier 2 in these locations?

I seem to be getting mixed opinions about these two firms ...

Thanks in advance for your help :)

In EMEA in general there is a difference in exit opportunities between MBB and others (and this difference is way smaller than in US) but then difference between second tier shops for exit opportunities is much more dependent on the expertise you will build within the firm and how in demand it is when you decide to leave rather than which firm you come from. Indeed you will see a lot of variability in post-consulting career paths within the same firm at the same level of exit depending on practice/industry of specialization and on specialization topic (e.g. pricing).

The best way to have an idea on what does opportunities are is to look at LinkedIn profile of employees in those regions and see where they landed.

That said, I would choose monitor Deloitte because it is more established in that space.

hope it helps,

With no doubt I would say Accenture Strategy.

I've been involved in strategy consulting for a while, and I can say that the jump from Accenture Strategy to MBB is fairly common. Accenture Strategy is clearly Tier 2. Monitor, Booz and the rest of Big Fours are a step behind. I can only speak for the European market though, it's the one I know well.
