Hey guys. I am still having a tough time choosing where to start my work after I graduate. Please provide your feedback on what offer you would choose, and explain why. That would be very helpful.

Background: Econ major, senior, about to graduate in 2 months.

Offers that I am choosing from:

1) IT consulting at Accenture/ IBM/ Capgemini type of firm.

2) 'Strategy consulting' at a medium-sized boutique consulting firm. I am not sure exactly what kind of work I would do at this firm, but my guess is that I won't get to do 100% strat consulting, but also some operational/ IT consulting as well... since this firm is no MBB or Monitor -level strat consulting firm.

3) In-house analyst position at a F500 company doing corporate strategy. The company is a top tech firm headquartered in Silicon Valley, CA. (think Facebook, Google, Cisco, HP, Amazon, Intel, etc) I honestly thought I didn't have a shot at this job since they were looking for people with some M&A experience, but I somehow managed to get the offer and the fact that I had a MBB summer internship helped me, I think.

The pay are similar between all these offers, so the differences in comp is negligible. The job in #2 pays the most, however the difference is 6k per year so it's not that big of a deal.

I am looking to work for 4-5 years and hopefully go for a top MBA program. So, I would appreciate your feedback on what job would position me the best for an MBA application.

I have only 1 week to decide on the offer... so I would appreciate your feedback. Also, my eventual goal is to have a interesting work experience to leverage that in getting into a top MBA program. I want to do I-banking after getting MBA. (I couldn't get a banking offer as a college senior this year)

Would you mind explaining why you would choose #3 over #2? Thanks!

Brand name...your goal is B-school. Second tier consulting makes it really tough. On top of that Corp Strat work is pretty fucking cool, especially in Tech. MBB would love that Pre-MBA experience as would IBD. Interaction with dealmakers is icing on the cake. This decision is not even close...

Thanks, man. Really helpful response.

I am leaning towards #3 as well at this moment. I think the work would be the most interesting of all three offers I got.

However, I have some friends who are telling me to take #2 because in their view, a consulting job is always better than an industry job for entry level... some things that I heard are stuff like your career progression is faster in consulting vs industry job, and after consulting you may have better exit-ops.

Not sure how credible that analysis is, though.

Also, should I cross off #1 now? I think I should be choosing between #2 and #3?

I'd def forget about #1. You're not talking about LEK, Deloitte, etc. right? If it's a boutique firm...I think Corp. Strat. is def the way to go. You may want to repost this, tomorrow in the a.m. I'm sure the consulting guys will tell you the same thing.

How is it that someone who has supposedly interned at MBB can say something as stupid as: " I won't get to do 100% strat consulting, but also some operational/ IT consulting as well... since this firm is no MBB or Monitor -level strat consulting firm." All the top consulting firms do a lot of operations work. The billing rates as well as difficulty are on par to strategy work. Moreover, Mckinsey is known to be the best at Ops and arguably gets the majority of its total revenue from Ops work (they sometimes brand supply chain operations as supply chain strategy, but at the end of the day it counts as operations).

Theres probably a reason you didnt get invited back to work at any of the top consulting firms. Or you're just a troll.

May I ask your intention for landing IB post-MBA? Are you sure you want to be a career banker?

I'm still advocating for #3. I'm sure with your Tech F500-MBA trajectory, you can still land IB, especially if the company is well known. (You can even carve a niche for yourself, like TMT IBD.) You'll be known as the "GOOG/AMZN/FB TMT banker"... that can differentiate you much more than "non-MBB consultant-now-banker".

wow, thanks for this insightful feedback. I never saw it that way. That's great insight!

I want to try banking since there is such a great upside if you are good enough to move up the ladder, and with banking work experience, you have a very wide range of exit ops. Maybe my career ambitions will change as I get older, so who knows what I will want to do 4 years later?

At my school, many kids seem to have this mentality that "consulting and banking jobs are the best, no matter what". I am rather surprised by how most replies so far advocate for job #3, since I thought most people on this site would tell me to choose consulting job offer.

Yeah, I would say that if you have multiple offers to choose from, and all of them would not pigeonhole your future ambitions, choose the one that is the best in its class. In your case, #3 clearly outshines the rest as the tech F500 company is presumably one of the most influential TMT companies, while #2 is nowhere near the best in its consulting industry. Therefore, you'd get a much superior experience at #3.

I may be wrong, and someone please correct me if I am: I think most post-MBA bankers intend to do IBD as a lifelong career and don't transition out of banking for an exit opp. I understood this to be because every extra banking year they put in is directly for their banking-career promotion and there is less and less transferable skills for exit opps. So thus, most people who exit banking are analysts. But now that I think about it I think I've read numerous VC/PE directors' bios that they have previously been VPs and MDs at IBD before making the switch. Anybody there who can comment on this?

Just look at this thread alone. I am sure half the people on this site come across as assholes/ retards/ whatever you name it.

I am pretty sure you have done well in school to get those offers, and I knew that you went to Cornell. I was commenting on the posts/arguments that you make here. Congratulations anyways.

Thx bro. You mind if you give me some feedback on which offer I should pick?

3/16/12

I would pick 3 without hesitation. What I say really does not matter though, since I am a sophomore. But what could be cooler than doing strategy for a top tech company in Silicon Valley?

3/16/12

I would pick #3 hands down. #1 sounds real, real boring. #2 is a crapshoot -- you could get great or bad experience depending on luck and deal flow. #3 seems like a sure path for a good MBA... if you're doing banking/consulting but not at a BB or MBB it can be hard to get into a top MBA program. A reputable F500 is a very good way to do that... excel in that environment, work your butt off and you should be good to go.

3/16/12

Guys, thank you for your constructive and thoughtful feedbacks. I guess Accenture / IT consulting get no love on this website, lol.

I crossed #1 off my list. Thanks to you guys, I am right now leaning towards job #3... but still kinda torn between #2 and #3.

Job #2 pays around 75k, and job #3 pays in upper 60k range.. but should I still go ahead and pick job #3?

Silicon Valley, CA is an interesting and fun place to be I think, but it is also the second most expensive area to live in the nation after NYC. I am not sure if 70k/ year in that region would travel as far as I would like. So, mainly for job #3, I am concerned about the cost of living relative to the salary I am getting..

Btw, the job #2 is based out of Boston, which is cheaper than Silicon Valley/ SF area.

3/16/12

Like the other guys said, take #3 hands down.

Your friends are taking the consulting thing too far. IT consulting at Accenture or strategy consulting at a less than reputable firm is a different world than MBB or upper tier firms (like Deloitte). Assuming that #3 is a real corporate strategy role, and not just marketed that way, it's by far your best choice. You should be able to live on #3's salary even in Silicon Valley. Correct? The short term 15k shouldn't be your deciding factor, the long term is far more important.

(btw, Amazon is not in Silicon Valley; it's in Seattle.)

Thx for the feedback. I really appreciate it. yeah, your analysis seems to be spot-on.

Would doing IT consulting at Accenture pigeonhole me into an IT guy?? Although Accenture is a global, reputable brand name, I would hate to be an IT guy for a career.

Job #2 is a no-name strat boutique consulting firm. So, even if they pay me big bucks, I am not sure if I will have any good exit ops, and I am not sure if it will enable me to get into a top 10 MBA program...

Job #3 pays the least, but the work seems the most interesting and has a strong company brand... As of now, I am leaning towards #3.

3) In-house analyst position at a F500 company doing corporate strategy. The company is a top tech firm headquartered in Silicon Valley, CA. (think Facebook, Google, Cisco, HP, Amazon, Intel, etc) I honestly thought I didn't have a shot at this job since they were looking for people with some M&A experience, but I somehow managed to get the offer and the fact that I had a MBB summer internship helped me, I think.

Job #2 pays around 75k, and job #3 pays in upper 60k range

Some honest advice Enrique: you may want to double check your duties as a Corp Strategy analyst. Considering I know that GOOG/AAPL/Facebook definitely do no not higher people without 2 years of deal experience/consulting to their teams you may just be looking at a finance rotational program (named differently, of course). Furthermore, the companies that do cherry-pick bankers and consultants for corporate strategy in SV understand that consultants and bankers are getting paid far beyond the "upper 60k range" and thus, adjust compensation.

Conclusions:
1) You're either getting shafted on the visibility into the type of work you'll actually be doing
2) You're getting low-balled on salary, or
3) You're making this all up

Congrats if it is real though and go back and double check responsibilities, etc...

But I think #3 might still be better. You also need to do some research on the boutique firm. Check if it's on any of the Consulting Magazine or Vault rankings. It might be better than you think; you just may not have heard enough about it. If it's truly a no name firm then #3 is still better IMO.

Thx for the advice man. I was very surprised that I got this offer, since they were looking for someone with some M&A work experience. But I nailed the interview and made a good impression, so I guess I got very lucky.

The analyst position is described as doing an internal corporate strategy work for that firm. It is not finance rotational program. And, I am not making this up... I was having a tough time choosing among my offers.

I like job #3 the best so far, and I am leaning towards it at this point. Only thing that is holding me back is its lower salary compared to job #2, especially after factoring in high COL in SF area.

job #2 pays the most (75k), job #1 pays second most, and job #3 pays the least (in 60k range)

3/16/12

Yea I agree, even if it is a more rotational program it still may be a better choice. A Finance Rotational at a top tech firm can be an amazing thing to have on a b-school app as there are just fewer applicants with a similar background, great brand name, and ability to shape a great/unique story.

Also, you may find the work to be rewarding and forget you ever even thought of going to b-school.

(1) The Silicon Valley isn't the East Coast. People here aren't going to know what a Cornell is, and even if they did, they probably wouldn't care. When people are asking you what school you went to, and a guy in your group says, "UC Davis," he's probably going to get a more enthusiastic response than you will. Seeing as you seem to conflate all personal identity/accomplishment with pedigree, I don't know if you're going to like it so much.

(2) No one -- I repeat -- no one here respects a guy who didn't work for what he has. Your little "I fucked around until I didn't, and I still ended up with a better job than you" speech isn't impressive here, and it's certainly not going to be impressive in real life. The West Coast is too few generations deep for people to forget about what it means to be self made.

(3) I don't know if it's because you're a product of a very narrow White Suburban --> Fancy Prep School --> Fancy College world, but you need to learn some humility. If you don't, this job is going to go about as well as your MBB internship.

That said, assuming you are, in fact, a legitimate person with legitimate offers: Congratulations, and best of luck. The Bay Area is one of the greatest places on Earth, and you're lucky that you'll be able to call it home for a few years.

This thread doesn't reflect very well on WSO. OP merely asked a question for which he was given a series of irrelevant and inane replies, which would cause anyone to lose their patience.

Anyway, SLE, third one definitely. No contest really. I'm in a few MBA classes this semester and there are a couple corporate strategy from tech firms guys here [M7 MBA btw], while there's almost no one from an IT consulting or a third-tier consulting firm.

Thanks for your feedkback, man. You and I get a lot of hate on this forum because we say Ivy >>> State U. LOL. I am about to sign my signature on the offer from job #3.

Anyhow, this website used to be awesome, but it has really turned into shit lately. There are some very awesome posters on this site, but too many high school-ish/ non-target faggot retards who contribute nothing to any threads. Also, why the fuck did I get all this monkey shits in this thread, asking for people's opinions on my offers?

I guess this site full of retarded faggots from 3rd tier shitty non-targets about to face unemployment after graduating, who are bitter as fuck that I got job offers while they didn't. Guess what non-target faggots: we Ivy kids get a big advantage when it comes to getting jobs.

I wouldn't go that far. My closest friend goes to a community college in Canada, and I can tell you most non-target kids are not douchey or ignorant at all.

That said, the non-target 'chip on the shoulder' attitude can get annoying and it certainly does exist on WSO, but I absolutely would not brand the entire forum that way. There are quite a few posters here who are extremely helpful--but these are the ones who post very infrequently and only post when they have valuable advice to share.

Completely agreed. Like I said, there are very intelligent and helpful posters on this site.

Really, the ones who post a lot in many threads (look at this thread) tend to be retards who don't know what the fuck they are talking about.

If you are a BB IBD banker, chances are you won't have that much free time at your disposal to fuck around in this forum, posting retarded shit again and again..

HAHAHAHA I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS.

In the same thread where you referencing the fact that you only have 3 shitty offers you continue with the Ivy talk. Newsflash moron, your Ivy school didn't do shit for you! So many people from State U on this forum have jobs so much better than yours. I can't believe that in the very same thread where you talk about what a shit sandwich you got served with your offers you continue this chest-beating Ivy faggotry. Your head must be so far up your ass that you can't even see straight any more.

Honestly bro you should just shut the fuck up.

Your level of ignorance and entitlement is absolutely ridiculous.

Most of the "non-target faggots" you've been attacking in this thread are already quite happily employed/have internship offers at some nice places. Just thought you'd like to know, for some perspective.

3/17/12

Well the thing is OP has a history of trolling and being a douchebag to many of the people on this forum, hence why he got the responses that he did.

3/17/12

One thing I don't quite understand about your situation SLE - why even post under your current name? With the way you're hated and labeled here (I post and follow too infrequently to know what your deal is, or everyone's deal with you - but just based on this thread, I can see why all the hate) why not post your serious (and presumably legit) question using a new account? And don't give me that 'oh, I don't care what people online think of me' or 'I can't be bother to spend an extra 30 seconds to start a new account', because very clearly you do care to some extent given your retorts, and you could have spared the extra 30 secs to 1 min to set up the new account if you're responding to non-helpful posts.

I can only assume, based on your actions... either this is fake (your offers) and you're just trolling - and in that case - congratulations, you've done so and wasted a lot of time (yours and a ton others). Or you actually do have the offers, but you also love other people's ire so two birds one stone, and in that case congratulations again - on the offer, and I suppose accomplishing what you set out to do - being a dbag and setting people off. Ha.

Anyway. Assuming this is legit, I will also cast my vote for #3 and I would second another poster's advice on double-checking the role to make sure they aren't up-selling the position to you. After that, it could be a toss up between 1 and 2, but I do happen to know an IT consultant who made it to a M7 school from a 2nd tier shop like the ones you mentioned, so I guess the name can help edge out the two options for second choice.

Seriously... assuming you do have legit questions, just use a different non-dbag-labeled account, to get serious answers

Exactly a rational human being would have created a new name as to avoid this public outcry of anger. I think he is honestly doing this post to gain "credibility" among internet people after only gaining a mediocre consulting job after a MBB internship.

3/17/12

My offer letter from job #3 says that my position is "Corporate Strategic Analysis". I don't think it is a fin rotational program...

but thanks for your response. I am not sure what you are saying about IT consulting - are you saying that doing IT consulting at big name shop (accenture or IBM) can be better for MBA app than doing Strategy consulting for no-name boutique shop?

3/17/12

So why do you have no IBD offers? Aren't you from an Ivy?

3/17/12

The fact that SLE still posts under his current names means 1 thing and 1 thing only. He has to get a kick out of the amount of hatred he has on this forum. There is no way that someone who would want legit career advice would post under such conditions.

You sir are a troll and its quite obvious have fun in BO or better yet a Batista at Starbucks...no milk...I'm lactose intoleran, thanks.

The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee

WSO is not your personal search function.

3/17/12

I decided OP has to be a troll, there is no other explanation.

3/18/12

OP what did you choose!!!!!!!!!!!!1

blastoise:

OP what did you choose!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I think he mentioned in the last page that it was gonna be #3.

As a side question, what does SLE stand for?

3/18/12

I have two things to say.

1) OP, I think you made the right decision. Go with #3. Sounds like the most promising of all the offers.

2) This thread does a severe disservice to WSO. And threads like these have only become more common. It usually starts off with an OP asking for some advice, followed by a number of useless posts (including posts from users who have 1000+ points and gold stars, aka the "certified monkeys".....rightttt) -- look @ the original post and the following 7-8 replies. Then it usually picks up steam with other users jumping in to either collectively bash the OP or just post stupid shit.

Patrick has put a lot of hard work into this community, and I feel like this thread (and the countless like it) only take away from that hard work. Shit like this drives posters away. Patrick asked me the other day why I am not as active as before. This is why -- don't feel like continuously reading / replying to a bunch of garbage when I only have so much free time. Matter of fact, I specifically look for posts by a handful of users (Eddie, CB, Marcus, a few others) and read / reply to those, but those are rare nowadays (excluding Ed's). I am sure other members feel the same...some of the best posters from 1-2 years ago are not active anymore, which is too bad, because they actually made WSO worthwhile to browse through (we even had an MD who posted fairly often).

Goes both ways. OP has wrecked so many threads with BS comments. Given horrible advice and so on. You want to talk about the quality of the forum and users, the real question is why OP even allowed to post anymore.

3/18/12

Please don't comment on the flaming if you don't know just how big a douche Sexy_Like_Enrique is (as if it isn't apparent by now).... the kid is obviously a loser and its ppl like him that contribute to the stigma of entitled target kids and, ironically, he is the one always defending targets... idiot.

p.s. this is not to support Flake's behavior as he seems to troll quite often as well (in the funny way not the douchey way like SLE)

3/18/12

SLE, just go with Accenture. You are destined for it.

3/18/12

Yo OP, you're a fucking faggot. If I ever saw you, I would beat your ivy bullshit out fo you.

3/18/12

and half of dude's posts are about how busted Cornell's girls are. Come on dude, just be real for once.

3/18/12

Lol IT consulting?? That target education sure got you far!

3/18/12

Cornell sucks. Basically a state school without the state school chicks. This is what I think of when I think Cornell:
