I’m always a fan of boutique firms and always didn’t understand why so many people cared about being in the MBB or Big 4 as the ONLY destination. Boutique firms provide so much value and is actually how I started out when I did my data analytics consulting internship at Analytic Partners in NYC.
There are pros and cons to both big and boutique firms, but frankly it also depends on what you want to do with your career. Large consulting firms are great if you still want to explore many different parts of consulting and industries, and boutique firms are great to get a lot of focused experience and skills in a particular industry, field, or region – like data analytics at Analytic Partners!
Next time ask yourself why do you want to pursue consulting or the field you’re interested, and it can help you make the decision!
