Wondering what your take is on S& vs. Monitor Deloitte. I received offers from both.
I am a graduate student in Europe. Curious on your opinion in difference between these firms on
1. Type of work (Strategy vs. more implementation work?)
4. Exit opportunities (I might be interesting in doing more social impact work later on)
To me it seems that S& is doing more prestigious work, thereby charging higher fees to their clients. I have basically deducted this from the fact that S& spends more on recruiting events, pays about 20% more in salary and provides much better benefits.
The people at S& seem to be more of 'real' strategy consultants while at Monitor they often come from other consulting firms such as e.g. Capgemini.
However, I felt that I was more attracted by the Monitor culture and people working there, making it feel as a tough choice for me.
What are your ideas? Happy to hear from anyone, people working / having worked at one of these firms (ideally both of course!), or people who have an interesting opinion from the outside.
Thanks for your help!
