Opinion on Bridgespan Group vs. Deloitte S&O Federal?Does anyone have an opinion on Bridgespan vs. Deloitte S&O Federal for nonprofit consulting work? I haven't seen Bridgespan mentioned often here and I'm wondering if it is because the rep isn't great or that it's simply a smaller organization (I think 200 total employees). It seems odd to me si...
