OC&C versus larger top tier consultancies

Hi!

How does OC&C London compare to the well known top firms (MBB, OW, ATK, LEK etc.) in terms of ranking, reputation, client mix/exposure and exit opportunities?

I know it's a boutique firm but seems to pay more than MBB at junior level so wondered how well it's regarded outside the consulting industry?

Thanks

Hi,

OC&C is regarded as a reputable, tier 2 consulting company, on a par with OW, ATK and LEK in the UK.

However, outside the UK, the company is less known compared to OW and ATK. The exit opportunities should be abundant given its reputation, however less so compared to MBB. I would advise you to get in touch with existing or former employees at OC&C to get a better understanding of the office and the points you raised in your question.

Regards,

Deniz
