I am not sure what region you are asking about. Presumably Europe since RB is in the same conversation, and France based off the username?

These things change significantly between regions so its best to be specific. E.g. In the US, OW definitely send people to PE, and LEK definitely has more than just PE as exits

A bit inconsistent. All 3 lead to great exits including IB, PE and MBB. OW is FS focused, yes but they also do other industries. In a similar vein, LEK is mainly HC focused and do both CDD as well as traditional corporate strategy. RB is a blend of the two, having a couple of sectors they are stronger in but operating across the spectrum. RB and OW often entail significant travel whilst LEK is office-based.

Thank you ! I gathered the main pieces of information I gathered during conversations with consultants and was trying to really understand the differences in terms of focus, culture and exit opportunities to make a decision. Would you have any more comments to help me?

Oliver Wyman does mainly FS and transportation - with a focus on risk modelling and operations. Consultants usually travel a lot and exits are to other consulting firms or corporates, no PE. I am under the impression that the firm has the best reputation of the three globally.

OW has very good PE exits

I am under the impression (at least in France/UK) that they are not doing a lot of due diligence and could not find a lot of alumni working at PE firms, but maybe consultants also don't feel like working in PE afterwards

OP is comparing T2 consulting firms. T2 consulting firms are not PE feeders to large cap firms. Don't miss the forest for the trees.

Suggest to specify that it's only to some MM and LMM then as that's not clear at all. You're the one making the blunt statements about OW having "very good PE exits".

FYI, other T2 also send people to (L)MM on par with OW if not better, including LEK and OC&C.

I'm only responding because your research is incomplete and you're nit picking over something not there, and so I don't want other forum readers to get the wrong idea. When I was recruiting for consulting and did not get into MBB, judging PE exits was important to me.

Look at the other threads for the list of places including UMM, MM, LMM and strong earlier stage (Growth, Venture) places like Sequoia Growth or Menlo Ventures. Feel free to nit pick over whatever you want from here but this is it for my responses here.

Anyone has any idea which consulting firms specialise in telecommunication companies? Thanks in advance!
