I've been a reader of this forum for quite a while but first time posting. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on IBM's Business Analytics and Optimization consulting arm. I'm an undergrad senior who just interviewed with them for an FT entry level consultant position and after doing my research still can't quite figure out a few things.
- What kind of work is this? Is this closer to a strategic management consultant role or more along the lines of IT consulting?
- What kind of exit opps are available from this position? I'd hate to be pigeonholed in data analytics. Would this position look good for MBA applications?
- How respected is IBM within consulting? I understand it doesn't even come close to or , but what firms are more or less equal with IBM.
I've searched around the site and found some scattered information but was hoping for some more detailed info. Thanks for any help!
