Thoughts on Altman Solon (Altman Vilandrie), and/or Advancy as an opportunity? US, Entry-level. Some example starting criteria:

  • (1) quality of & what type of exits?
  • (2) career track speed & pay
  • (3) ranking compared to T2, B4
  • (4) WLB/culture
  • (5) projects - industry split, function split

Hi Kenny,

I actually have not heard of them. However, based on some question research, I can say that if you're interested in TMT consulting specifically, they would be a great choice.

If you're looking for broader exposure or to eventually go into MBB (i.e. generalist strategy consulting), it may not be your best bet (especially compared with B4/T2).

On industry/function split

Industry: Tech, Media Telecoms

Function: Strategy, operations, go-to-market, and capital markets

On culture, WLB, and pay

On ranking

It's really not even on the list. Too young and small

Hi,

I know the two companies in general terms but I can't be very specific on answering your question in greater detail.

If you like Media, Entertainment & Tech, Solon is a better alternative than Advancy.

The two companies are comparable between each other, but I believe T2 and B4 tend to remain better alternatives than them.

I hope it helps.

Best,

Antonello

Hello!

Haven´t heard, and in these cases:

  • Glassdoor or equivalents
  • Employee search on Linkedin to see people with whom you have people in common and cold-call

Cheers,

Clara
