Deciding between offers for MBB FT

Currently deciding between AT&T Supply Chain Strategy & Consulting (Dallas) and Altman Solon (NY) in order to maximize my chances recruiting for MBB/ T2 for FT

AT&T is obviously the more recognizable name, but the experience at AS may translate better to MBB. I would also prefer to live in NY, but am open to making the move to TX. From what I know, the culture/ people at both groups seem fine. 

Which would you take if the ultimate goal is re-recruiting for FT?

Given what you said about preferring ny to Dallas, I'd recommend you take the Altman Solon offer. The work is very comparable and transferable to other consulting firms. Also in case MBB ft recruiting doesn't work out, AS is a great option as long as you're interested in TMT. I think many of the projects they get within the TMT space are mbb caliber projects and iirc pay is above market. I would personally prefer Altman Solon over several T2 strategy consultancies.

Altman Solon for sure no question at all 

Back when I was screening resumes, I see AT&T, I think meh, there's a jillion AT&T interns; I see Altman Solon, I think man this guy went to a great boutique, let's see if we can nab him

Did consulting in the past: take altman- MBB is a prestige game. Remember: sure, people don't know Altman, they know At&t-just as people may not know what the French Laundry is, but they sure as heck know what McDonald's is. 

Don't go to McDonalds
