Facebook apparently has their own ideas about which companies are top tier:

Microsoft Specific

From a recruiter email:
"Please target top tier companies like Google, Apple, Walmart, Oracle, Amazon, Tesla, Deloitte, Accenture, etc."

List feels a bit off the wall. Blind's thoughts?

      ^McKinsey, Bain&Co, and Boston Consulting Group

      I thought MBB was a tier above the Big4 firms and their consulting arms. But I think it's subjective.

      They’re like two tiers above

      That's what I'm saying. MBB is better, but they're very small

      Ops at Facebook has a lot of MBB folks. Not so much from Deloitte.

    Maybe this is for legal department. Then Oracle is definitely top tier.

    What did you ask the recruiter for him to send this list?

      OP
      Didn't. Was part of the cold call email. My suspicion is that they were directions given to the recruiter by FB and they just copy pasta'd them into the email. Given that the position also said "local candidates only", my suspicion is that this particular recruiter wasn't big on directions (or critical thinking).

      The variance in quality for startup SWEs is high. So while you’ll find great ones there, you’ll have to go through more candidates to get a hire

      I thought Deloitte S&O was top tier for management consulting?

      I don't think so either. McKinsey and Boston consulting group are like the top tier management consulting firms. I feel sad , they didn't include the trillion dollar company :(

      MBB are hard to target. Deloitte is the runner up and an order of magnitude bigger. While Accenture is big and specializes in tech, unlike others
