We need to make more purposeful and calibrated investment decisions. Bechek may not be the right person to make these calls. Bain Partner
There is a myth that we, McKinsey, are now showing teeth in adherence to our values. It was always this way, especially under Bower. We have this touchy and warm view of the past that is false. Things got softer at the firm recently and we are moving back to the way we where. The difference is that the media is reporting it. McKinsey Partner
I wish we would be more focused on the emerging markets beyond a few pockets in Latin America and India. Deloitte S&O Principal
I do not know Bechek very well. Bain does feel like it is on the path for amazing changes. Bain Partner
We need a bigger investment in Asia. More senior support and more training. Lesser is doing a lot but Asia needs to become a bigger focus. BCG Partner
Not everyone supported the sale and a majority is not always right. Mainardi should have fought harder for independence. We will not survive as a small part of PwC. PwC Strategy & Partner
Dominic has the moral authority to guide McKinsey. He is doing it in an inclusive way. He is creative, ambitious and innovative. He is preparing the groundwork for a better McKinsey and we will see the results in a few years. McKinsey Partner
Deloitte S&O has a bright future. There are challenges and obstacles but we continue growing from strength to strength. That makes me optimistic about the future of strategy at Deloitte. Deloitte S&O Principal
There is a sense of purpose, energy and enthusiasm at Bain. How many firms can say this? Bain Partner
We need to make a stronger push into implementation and Lesser's stance on this is not always consistent. BCG Partner
We need more support from PwC. They have been great so far but we need sustained investments. I personally supported the acquisition and feel Mainardi is doing enough. The partners of Booz must make the implementation work. Mainardi can only do so much. PwC Strategy & Partner
He seems to have a great vision, I believe he can execute it and will support him to the best of my abilities. This is the general mood of the firm. There is energy and purpose. People are excited. Roland Berger Partner
Airing disagreements with the European partners in the New York Times is not the the way of the Firm and it is certainly not the way the managing partner should act. McKinsey Partner
Canning is an able leader. He lets the practices set and execute their plans with the right level of support. The results speak for themselves. Deloitte S&O Principal
Bain is on course for big things in Asia. Watch this space. Bain Partner
Good ideas. Good vision. Good support. Let us see what happens. BCG Partner
The acquisition has been less than perfect. We have lost clients and it is tough. We hope the changes work out in the end. I hope they do. I am staying to see it through. PwC Strategy & Partner
This is a new Roland Berger, taking the best of the firm and adding it to where Bouee is taking us. The fact that a French partner was voted CEO of a German firm demonstrates how far the firm has come and where it is going. This is a great place to be. Roland Berger Partner
We are moving far from our mentorship style of grooming consultants on ethics to forcing them to use online compliance tools. McKinsey Partner
Deloitte S&O remains incredibly underrated. We continue growing in every direction, have outlasted Monitor & Booz, and will probably outlast AT Kearney. We have no intention of outlasting McKinsey. We want them to exist as we overtake them. Deloitte S&O Principal
Great leader. Highly respected. Bain Partner
Lesser is a well regarded and highly accomplished leader. The firm is fortunate to have him. BCG Partner
Mainardi played the best hand he could. Booz & Co. is stronger through our alliance with PwC. We can do big things together and time will prove us right. PwC Strategy & Partner
Bouée is the right leader for Roland Berger at the right time. Roland Berger Partner
We stopped being a global partnership a long time ago. Offices no longer work fluidly in trusting and using consultants from across offices. A lot of the things you read about McKinsey are, to me anyway, legacy stories which have no grounding in fact. This is one reason I am leaving the Firm. McKinsey Partner
The article paints the changes as solely an initiative of Dominic’s. That is not true. This is widely supported at the Firm and Dominic is only the face of the changes. You could just as easily put my picture up there in that article. McKinsey Partner
‘0’ implies there is no support for the CEO and ‘100’ implies there is complete support for the CEO.
Ranking data is calculated from a sample of a minimum of 10 different partner questionnaire responses per CEO per firm. For the CEO ranking to be updated, there must be >10 valid questionnaire responses and each must be < 3 months old. As soon as a response ages past 3 months, it is removed from the sample, and if the resulting sample for that CEO contains <10 questionnaire responses, no ranking will be shown for the CEO in that week. That ranking will reactivate if a new response is submitted or the old response is updated, resulting in >10 responses.10>
Although the minimum required partner responses are 10, all firms have significantly more submissions with a range of 37 to 154 partners submitting feedback.
A ranking could change if an older response is removed from the sample, provided the overall sample size does not drop below 10.
50% of BCG, Bain and McKinsey feedback are from partners in offices outside the USA. Cesare Mainardi and Burkhard Schwenker are primarily ranked on international partner feedback with no one country providing more than 20% of the responses.
Rankings for Charles-Edouard Bouee prior to 1 July 2014 reflect the ratings for Burkhard Schwenker. Bouee succeeded Schwenker on 28 June 2014.
Michael Canning is the US Leader for Deloitte S&O and his feedback is only from US Deloitte S&O partners and, therefore, not a reflection of Deloitte S&O outside the US.
Firmsconsulting does not alter the rankings. We only collect the feedback, ensure eligibility and tabulate the rankings.
