Hi Arty,

it really depends on your goals, why did you apply for a position at that company in the first place?

The most useful experiences for MBB are:

  • Other strategy consulting firms, ideally Tier 2
  • Top strategy role for big brands

P&G seems more aligned for that, but again, without knowing your final goals it is difficult to comment.

Hey Arty!

Interesting challenge. My advice is to assess what you gain from the move, given the fact that you are young and have a lot of time ahead to make many (even bad) choices:

  1. Why are you talking MBB - is that your ultimate goal? If so, and consultancy is what you enjoy, skip the intermediaries. I wouldn't be concerned about them disregarding your resume if you do go for no-name; your experience, performance and network will decide where you go from there.
  2. Will the work be more interesting compared to your current position?
  3. Does the no-name company have a good training system or mentorship program? Do they have interesting and demanding clients?
  4. How do you perceive your potential future manager? No amount of money can compensate for a bad boss.

Best of luck,
