I am new to this forum and I had quick look through previous threads but couldn't find what I was looking for, so I thought I would just open my own thread.
I am graduating with my Masters in about 1,5 years (studying in Germany) and I want to start in consulting since quite a while. I have done one internship in inhouse consulting (Porsche Consulting) previously and will do another internship around February, which i currently having interviews for. The question is, which of the possible choices you think is best to advance a) myself (what can I learn in the internship) and b) my CV (which is best for my entrance as full time). My goal for the full time job is probably MBB, but some of the "Tier 2" choices are interesting for me as well (including the ones I habe interviews for).
I currently hold offers from A.T. Kearney and OC&C and have interviews with BCG, Strategy&, Roland Berger and Siemens Management Consulting coming up and I am wondering which would be the best order to pick them, provided I get the chance.
My current order is:
1. BCG - for obvious reasons and because i spent a few days with them and had a great time + they are my favorite out of MBB for reasons I don't really know myself
2.Strategy& - spent a few days with them and the people were really great and genuine, furthermore I think they have a really great reputation among the Tier 2 firms (is that true?)
3./4./5. Now comes the tricky part where i really don't know which is best: A.T. Kearney, OC&C or Roland Berger
6. SMC since I don't really want two inhouse consultant internships
Does anyone have further insights on ATK, Strategy& and RB? As it stands I heard a lot about RB being somewhat on a downwards trend + they do A LOT of restructuring, on the other hand I spend some time with them as well, liked most of the people and they used to be a very big name in Germany. As for OC&C and A.T. Kearney I don't have much to judge on. Are they maybe even better than Strategy&?
Thanks everyone for your help!
