KPMG OR Mckinsey & Company? by JARUSHUB: 11:38am On Jun 26, 2018
Dear Jarus,

I am a first class graduate of Computer science, University of Ibadan. I got entry level offers as an analyst in KPMG and McKinsey (Nigerian offices). Please which of the two should I go for and why? I would also like to add that I plan on either eventually continuing my career in a big firm in this sector in
the UK or Start up my own tech company in Nigeria. Your speedy response is crucial and would be highly appreciated.

Thanks sir

Congrats on your McKinsey offer. It’s not everyday you see Nigerians get job offer from McKinsey with only Nigerian degree(s). Even the smartest graduates from Ivy League schools in the US dream of McKinsey. I think that already answers your question.
McKinsey is:

1, World’s #1 Consulting firm at the latest ranking.

2, Consistently among the Top 3 Consulting firms in the world in the last 20 years (Only competitors are Bain & BCG).

3, Most prestigious consulting firm in the world in 2016.

So, whether you plan to progress in the 9-5 career or start your own startup in the future, McKinsey, I’m afraid, beats KPMG.
If you decide to rise through the ladder in McKinsey, you will learn a lot. If you decide to move to other companies at some point, with McKinsey on your CV, you’re a hot cake. If you decide to start your own startup, guess what? Every year, Forbes publishes list of “30 under 30” entrepreneurs/startup founders in the US/Asia/Europe, between 8-10 of them are usually ex-employees of McKinsey. Shows how successful McKinsey alumni even in startup world.

KPMG is no doubt a great company to start career, but if you have KPMG offer on one hand and McKinsey on the other, my brother, McKinsey is too prestigious to be rejected.
I wish you all the best.

Jarus
