Reputation Perspective - Arthur D Little reputation in the consulting circle

Hi All, Can experts kindly eleborate on the reputation of Arthur D Little in the consulting circle? Hows ADL viewed from MBB side in the context of reputation? Prestegious/well-respected/Tier2 etc.? ADL advertises on its website that they reviewe more than 20K resumes per year and on average has an acceptance rate of just 1% (1 hire per 100 CVs etc.). This looks pretty competetive - Can anybody shed some light on this fact and competetiveness etc.? I have recieved an offer and I am thinking of if accepting the offer and having it on my resume will boost my career progression etc. Cheers, Charles

Hi Charles,

as for my experience in Southern Europe (situation in other geographies may be different):

  • Reputation is good enough to migrate to second tier and also some MBB (easier Bain, more difficult McK and BCG) after some experience
  • I would consider it more a third tier than a second one (which is mainly related to OW, ATK, RB, Strategy&)
  • Impact on your CV depends on your opportunity cost – which would be the alternative you could choose if you reject the offer?

I would recommend checking on LinkedIn which was the career path of former ADL consultants to make an accurate decision for your geography.

Best,

Francesco
