Hi all,

I'd like to know how similar DS at Strategy& is to the kind of work MBB actually do. Does being in DS make it more likely for one to lateral to MBB in the future? 

If not, which division someone within Strategy& is most likely to lateral to MBB?

Something else I'd like to know, which Tier 2 strategy consulting firm has a history of employees going to MBB? Is Strategy& the highest ranked firm among Tier 2?

How does Strategy& compare to the likes of Oliver Wyman, Deloitte S&O, Kearney, EY-Parthenon, Accenture Strategy and Roland Berger in terms of strategy work done and prestige?

Can you reach out directly to me (and let me know which country you are applying to)? I am happy to provide my opinion, but would rather do it in private.

I am very well-placed to answer this as I was in S& DS team before moving to BCG :)

In a nutshell - it's a very interesting and complex dynamic, and is evolving year on year. In general it can have a strong brand (some of my ex-colleagues have made really fantastic exits into PE and FAANG). 

Feel free to schedule time with me and I'll spill more tea there, there's a lot cover and it also depends on your personal situation (geography, level etc.)
