Monitor Deloitte vs Strategy& in Paris office ?

Anonymous A asked on Jun 25, 2019 - 1 answer

Hello everyone,

I'm having a really hard time deciding between Monitor and S& in Paris

  • Monitor pays better (20% approx)
  • Projects seem a bit more interesting at Monitor
  • Greater variety of industries at S&
  • S& seems to have a better reputation (in Europe, not sure about France)

Any input would help !

Thanks

It really depends on what you want to do with your stint in consulting - few years then another firm, few years then in corporate, stay and go up the ranks etc. - and assess the company culture regarding your plan (even though it will most likely change over time :))

From a reputation perspective S& is slightly better recognized in Paris as a separate strategy consulting activity, whereas Monitor is more blended within EY galaxy of service lines. From a project/industry perspective it is something very dynamic, especially because these 2 firms are agressively hiring partners, so the projects in 6 months can be quite different from those that are ongoing today.

Finally the paycheck should not be a criteria in my opinion, but that's really just me :)

Cheers
