NYC vs, West Coast

Rank: Chimp | 10

Does anyone have any insight into the major advantages/ disadvantages of pursuing strategy consulting (m/b/b)in NY vs. San Francisco?

Specifically, I am curious about how work flow (work type), lifestyle, and exit opps are affected by the decision to work in one of these locations as opposed to the other.

Is there any practical relevance to the fact that the firm's main office is in NY?

I guess you're talking about McK, since BCG and Bain are both based in Boston.
