Boutique means a business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele.

Small or boutique firms offer a unique set of opportunities and benefits compared to larger consulting firms.

The word "Boutique" typically refers to a small office or business, one such firm might consist of only a single adviser, and another might have 200 or more consultants working for it. Unlike major consulting firms, however, even the larger boutique firms are very specialized rather than offering general consulting services.

Successful boutiques deliver a small number of Very-High-Quality services. (Even large consultancies cannot deliver every possible service.)

We deliver full spectrum of HR solutions to our local and international clients of all sectors by doing extensive research.

Key features of Boutique Firm

  • Informal culture

You can expect a more informal "start-up" culture within a boutique. Organizational hierarchies and barriers are fluid and relaxed. This environment of openness and collaboration makes many boutique firms pleasant places to work.

  • Exposure to high-level consultants

Even the youngest consultants will get the chance to work closely with and learn from the "big guns" in the firm.

  • "Real" front-line consulting

Unlike bigger firms that put young hires on an analyst track and slowly work them into client-facing work, a boutique firm is more likely to quickly integrate its associates into client-facing activities (interviewing clients, participating in planning meetings, presenting findings, leading meetings, etc.). Simple staffing constraints mean that everyone wears many hats and helps out with client engagements. Young consultants will balance "back room" research and deliverable production with gigs on client work teams.

  • Learning opportunities

Most boutiques do not have the time or resources to spoon feed their young consultants along in a training program. New consultants learn immensely from getting thrown into challenging situations. For a critical deliverable responsibility and pressure are constant companions while making a presentation or preparing a report. For mature consultants who are able to learn very quickly, this arrangement is ideal.

  • Lack of formal training

Formal training at boutique firms is virtually non-existent. MBA tuition support programs are also rare. Consultants learn and develop on the job with the support of peers and mentors. Much of the "academic" learning is self-initiated and self-directed. This can be irritating to someone looking for structured, subsidized learning opportunities.

  • "Who did you work for? Never heard of 'em."

A surprising downside to working for a boutique is that, regardless of how outstanding your experience is, it may not help your resume. Many recruiters care only for "big five" or "top-tier" consulting experience. This practice may be short-sighted, but former boutique employees may have their resumes devalued for lack of a "brand name" consulting employer

  • Spartan office facilities and rare support staff

Most boutique firms must carefully control their overhead, so much of the infrastructure one would find at larger firms is not present. Consultants do not have executive assistants. There is no dedicated research staff to dig up data. There may not be a company intranet or an it staff to maintain it. In fact, many boutiques do not even keep office space for their consultants. The bottom line is that consultants at boutique firms do not work in opulent spaces. They make their copies, arrange their travel, and handle the other administrative chores that pop up.

  • Word of caution - don’t accept that offer just yet

There is plenty of information available about large consulting firms. Unfortunately, there is virtually no public information available on most boutique firms. Because of this, it is very important to aggressively research the company before signing on. Check out the firm's web site. Speak to employees within the firm. Look for favorable coverage in the press. Finally, make sure that all of your questions are answered before you accept an offer.

Because of the particular nature of small consulting firms, the following questions are especially important to answer if you are considering a boutique job:

  • What is the culture like at this firm?
  • How financially stable is the company?
  • Does this firm have a steady stream of client accounts?
  • Has this company delivered good results for their previous clients?
  • What types of clients does this firm serve?
  • Is there a career path to follow?
  • The path forward​

You have carefully weighed the ups and downs of working for a boutique. You have done your research and asked all of the right questions. Whether you choose a big firm or a boutique, you have made an informed decision about which road to travel by. That should make all the difference for your career.
