I have offers from both Roland Berger and Monitor for internships in Europe. What are your thoughts on the two firms and how they compare? I am mainly looking for prestige here, both within Europe and beyond.
Thank you for your help.

Is Deloitte still pursuing Roland Berger by the way? Were they not considering acquiring them?

Thank you for the replies. Mixed opinions I see.

It'll depend on where you intend on pursuing your career post-consulting. As it has been mentioned above, RB has quite a prestigious name in Europe, but Monitor takes the cake in other parts of the world (ie. North America). So if you later plan on working in the United States, for instance, the brand value of Monitor will likely take you farther than RB would.

Monitor is absolutely massive in Asia (some in India would not blink if you told them the M in M/B/B refers in fact to Monitor), and has a huge practice in NA. They are also strong in other areas of the world. Roland Berger is nowhere close to being as big a name globally.
