Many of you are experienced consultants and as such I would appreciate your advice, on which company would offer the best graduate opportunities. I'm on a year placement with HP prior to my final year and I'm looking for opinions from people like you before I commit myself to a firm.

I'm primarily interested in Management Consultancy and have an idea of which companies I’d like to join, but all opinions would be appreciated.

You could try referring to our Insiders Guide - consultants opinions of the highs and lows of the firms they work for. You can find this in the careers section, or go to:<br><br>

Not an easy decision I admit. But I would fly the flag for IBM because we are a technology company that also has its own consulting division (and I do mean Management Consultancy - not IT consultancy). If you look at the other Big 5, they are trying to partner with IT companies (HP tried to get PWC, E&Y have merged with Cap).

If you are free and single, Assenture is good in that you will see the world - but I know that it's a tough life as you get moved around quite a lot.

Hope that's of help.

Tanya: I am with KPMG Consulting which I consider the best of the best! I've been with the firm for a bit over two years and have found it to be rewarding and challenging. The Managing Directors I've worked with are corporate minded and commited to the success of our clients. This commitment to clients, I believe, is one of our differentiators for success. Good luck!

Hello Tanya,

I would suggest joining a 'proper' organisation first and then moving into consultancy. You will do a lot more and also be able to bring some value into your new job.

A lot of graduate opportunities in MC's are simply not that exciting or give you the depth of experience that a role in a non-MC can.

Good luck!
