Prestigious can help bring in more business at better rates. No one gets fire for hiring IBM. Is that still true?
In 2015, the top 10 most prestigious consulting firms ranked by Vault.com:
- Mckinsey and Company
- The Boston Consulting Group
- Bain and Company
- Deloitte Consulting
- Booz Allen Hamilton
- Pricewaterhouse Coopers Advisory
- EY LLP Consulting
- IBM Global Business Services
Hey, IBM made it to TOP 10! I had a subcontracting relationship with IBM for many years. It was a lucrative consulting assignment as it was a 10 years outsource engagement between IBM and its client. I was there for years developing new systems and provided support for IBM’s client. I enjoy working for prestigious consultant firms as an independent consultant. Prestigious and large consulting firms get the bulk of the business. Their rates tend to be better and usually on a long term basis. There tend to be some protection from being bullied by the client since you are working for the big boy. There are definitely some leverage. Size and prestigious matters!
