For many, consulting is a means to tap into a larger network and eventually move into the c-suite of another firm. For those consultants, McKinsey again offers the best exit ramp for a better job. However, this factor represents a major shake up. Notably, Bain climbed from 4th to 2nd from the previous survey, boosting its score by nearly .2 of a point. BCG, Clearview Healthcare Partners, and Putnam Associates each slipped a spot as OC&C Strategy Consultants jumped into the Top 10 after being unranked here in 2020.
