Shooting for MBB, Semi-Target Uni, Strong Leadership, Good Grades, please humble me

I'm a junior at Cornell trying to intern at a top mgmt consulting firm. My resume is semi-anonymized, but you could find me pretty easily if you really wanted to, but I don't really care.



Infosys Management Consulting

Hi does anyone know any reputation on Infosys's management consulting group? It seems pretty new and I read an article today that they're hiring over 2100 new graduate students this year to boost their US consulting practice. I got an offer out of undergrad right now that I am mulling over but also a TC one from Accenture.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Advice please! Google v. IBM v. Deloitte?

Hi folks,

WSO has been a great source of advice throughout my job search - and I finally have options that I could really use your help to decide between! I'm a senior at a top 3 university, currently trying to figure out what to do for full time. I really wanted to work for MBB but didn't get an offer after interviews. I currently have offers for IBM consulting (interned last summer), Google sales, and Deloitte consulting S&O. I'm also interviewing for the Capital One business analyst program and a position with Royal Caribbean on the revenue management side. A consideration of mine would be to potentially work at MBB in the future, or work in retail/consumer goods, although I'm not sure yet what I want to do.

Advisory Consulting

Currently an analyst in a F500 strategy group (internal consulting). Looking to move into Big 4 Advisory to gain broader experience and hopefully bump up into an upper tier B-School program.

I understand the various services that Big 4 firms offer but in terms of structure, are teams confined to a particular service area alone or does it vary for the team from engagement to engagement? I'm not too sure I would enjoy technology consulting, although I will admit I now very little about what it entails.
