Not sure how to decide...

Ex Big4 consultant joining in. Now managed to transfer to Kearney (even though I liked our old At kearney name better hahh).

The work is different on a number of levels:

Strategic degree of work - where at Big4 we used to work for and interact with mid level management (talking about a multinational corporation) at Kearney we deal with c-level and highly important long term strategic projects. Of course not every project is about defining the 10 year growth plan for a company but it's much less nitty-gritty than the work I used to do at Big4. 

Management exposure - due to the first point you tend to interact a lot with senior management through steering committees etc - in short, you meet more important people than at Big4 (heavy generalization, i know) 

Excellence/standards - My opinion is this: You have excellent people at the B4 and you have excellent people at Kearney, Berger, McKinsey etc. 

The difference is that at Big4, due to the high recruiting numbers, sometimes at not-so-excellent hire will manage to slip in.. This does not happen in the top tier firms. 

From a number of friends working at RB in Duesseldorf and Amsterdam I know that their work is very much related to what we do at Kearney.

Generally when looking at these top-tier firms you should look for personal preferences- research their firm culture and talk to people who work there. That's honestly the best way to come to a conclusion.
