Hi everyone, I have been lurking for quite a bit and want to thank you all for the awesome advice. I have received 2 offers here in Europe:
1. PA Consulting - Technology Strategy;
2. KPMG - Financial Services Strategy.
Both of them say they do Strategy and Implementation, so the titles are a bit misleading. I like both FS and Technology, so choosing is quite hard.
I am not sure which firm is generally seen as better, which one has better exit opps and the overall prestige of the work that they do. I also don't know what to think about Carlyle taking over PA, which could mean a BAH scenario where they'll focus more on the public sector. However, it could also go the other way. KPMG is a Big 4 firm, but the consulting branche is nothing like PwC and Deloitte, so I don't know how much of the Big 4 benefits I would get when joining them. Salaries are almost the same.
What is your view on this? Thanks!
