Answering this question, it’s important to name reasons which fit well into the MBB narrative and a job of consulting – and obviously avoid the reasons which do not. Good reasons to name would be:

  • Your tegridy – you are not comfortable with the work this client is doing (e.g. tobacco or weapons manufacturer), so you are not going to work for them
  • You feel that the positive impact of the project on the client is not as significant and is not worth your fees – the client would be better off doing it without you
  • You feel that the project is badly scoped – the resources available for the project would not bring the results promised to the client

All in all, answer thinking about your client’s interests first and your personal interests second (except in the case of tegridy, because this money can’t buy)
