Ocean Tomo

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this company? The kind of opportunities they offer after working here, compensation, type of work and etc.

Also, would one take a position at this company over LECG, Cornerstone, ZS Associates, Deloitte Consulting, Bearingpoint, Capgemini , LEK, or Accenture? or also how it ranks to these companies?

Thank you for the help

Take LEK.

Yup, know this company. I know folks in the Chicago office. On the shallow side, the name has cache, it's a pretty office in a good location with lots of well paid pretty people. (Ofcourse I interviewed there while in B-School) On the practicality side, not sure if their business model is working. For example, they wanted to do this market for auctioning off intellectual property. Initially a highly intriguing concept. Their first auction was in late 2006/early 2007 and it was not at all as highly subscribed as what they thought it would be. Actually, it was a flop. On the asset management side, they're trying to do some "creative" things but execution hasn't been good.

ZS Associates has a HEAVY business in pharmaceutical sales/marketing consulting... that's their thing. Their bread and butter.

Don't do Bearingpoint... don't do that to yourself
Don't go to Capgemini... lame
Deloitte... no comment
Accenture... don't do it
LECG... no familiarity
LEK... go there :-)

Thank you for the input! It is very helpful.

So it seems that it wouldn't be a first job out of undergrad, especially since it is such a niche? The expert services analyst just seems like a pretty unique and interesting job.

If anyone else has some input, please feel free to comment!

You never mentioned what position... an "expert services analyst" position means you'd be working in their litigation consulting group, which is not a shabby place to start right out of undergrad. Not the best place to be in Ocean Tomo, but again, not a shabby place for a first job out of undergrad. All I can tell you is that it's a lot of due diligence and discovery work, not a whole lot of financial modeling.

Are you talking to a recruiter at Ocean Tomo? Have you already interviewed. Do they have anything open in valuations?

seems like a good firm, which position are you gunning for?

business valuation analyst role. B-schools specifically would look upon this as a decent experience though?
