Ranking the Big Four (plus ACN) Strategy Shops
I obviously have my own thoughts here but curious to see what the community thinks. Obviously may be group dependent (e.g., deals vs. non-deals) but, on the whole - including perceived "prestige," compensation, exit opportunities, access to interesting work, etc. - how would you rank the Big Four Strategy Shops (plus ACN Strategy given its historically in there as part of Arthur Anderson)?
Also, this ignores legacy Strategy groups for those that acquired a Strategy shop (e.g., non-Strategy& "Strategy"), so is among Strategy&, Parthenon, S&A, and ACN Strategy.
And, yes, this is kind of a silly topic and more curious to see responses / entertainment value.
