Bain vs. BCG in Continental Europe

 
#1 Bain vs. BCG in Continental Europe

Michael

Hello,

I am hopefully due to receive offers from both BCG and Bain in the coming weeks, based on feedback from the final rounds.

I am interviewing with an office on Continental Europe, without specifying, that could be Paris, Rome, Munich or Zurich.

I wanted to check the board and hear if there were any suggestions on which to go for? Assuming salary will be equivalent, is one brand more recognized / valued on the Continent? Are there any insights into culture that you can share? Is one more academic vs. commercial vs. financial?

I know in London and the US these firms can have a slightly different feel so I would appreciate Continental references, if possible.

FYI I am pre-MBA and would do 2/3 years before going to pursue an MBA sponsored by the chosen Firm.

Thank you in advance,

Michael.

Curious to Michael (#1)

What's your background and what level are you going in at?

IMHO Bain has a slightly stronger brand. From what I've heard Bain has a strong entrepreneurial culture. I’ve also known them to have a bit more of qualitative, soft, marketing etc. lean than BCG but I’m sure it depends on project.

Mars A Day to Michael (#1)

There are some marked differences between them, but in terms of prestige and reputation in the continental market nothing really between them.

My choice, by a hair's breadth, would be BCG: they are less locked in to PE work, have a phenomenal rep in market strategy, and hire a slightly more diverse pool than Bain.

Frankly it will come down to which makes an offer: if both do, go with the best package/location as either will give you a great start.
