junebug62 Posted April 14, 2009 Share Posted April 14, 2009 What are some good think tanks and government consulting firms that hire MPP/MPAs and MA IRs? Which firms are most respected/competitive? Is there a "McKinsey" of government consulting? Is there competition between non-Phds and professional degree holders for jobs, or a glass ceiling for non-Phds? Grads with quant and computer science skills also seem to be in demand, at least when I perused a few postings myself. For all the main prof. degree schools, which tend to place the most grads or highest percentage of the class in public sector consulting or think tanks? Clearly, I could google this but I'd like to know what posters here have to say and drum up a discussion. A few that come to mind are Rand, Brookings, LMI, SAIC, Booz Allen...I also get the impression that the world of government consulting and government think tanks in the US isn't nearly as cutthroat competitive as private sector business consulting for hiring. Think tanks positions also seem to about who you know, or hire based on the reputation you already built as a high-level government figure.
