Big and beautiful?

Tom Murphy is involved in an interesting discussion with Jeaneane Sessum about the future of large consultancies. Follow it here.

I’m about to broaden my experience by visiting a number of students on placements in large UK consultancies. So I should keep my counsel for now.

But here are some hints. I left a medium-sized consultancy just as it was about to become part of a global brand. I later left a small, specialist consultancy before it was bought by a large generalist. I spent ten years working independently, but felt I suffered from the lack of a brand identity and also noted the downward trend in fees paid to experienced freelances.
