Wondering if you guys can give me an idea of the consultancy market in the UK at the moment. I ask about the UK as I'm currently in the USA finishing the first year of my MBA at Stanford. As background, I've got a masters and PhD from one of the top UK uni's and after worked for one of the big pharma companies there. I moved to Silicon Valley about 4 years ago to work for a start up which led to the MBA.
I'd like to come back to London when I'm done and get into a good strategy firm (McK, BCG, Bain, LEK) so I'm curious what the market is like there now. I understand it will be different in a year when I'm finished my MBA, however I'd appreciate perspectives from people in the field over there.
