Tell Us Who Your Dream Recruiters in 2019-20 Are!
Here’s a chance for you to tell recruiters what matters to you - MBA aspirants, students and alumni. Share your dream companies, what factors (including compensation, work-life balance, ROI, pre-placement talk, domain, function, etc.) matter to you when shortlisting companies, your perception and ideas about the top recruiters in your b-school, companies you wish to work with as an aspirant, etc.
Check out some interesting trends that emerged over the last few years through various recruiter ranking reports here:
2018-19 was a landmark year, when Google (Alphabet Inc.) became India's No.1 Dream Company for the first time ever, dethroning the highly popular Unilever and Tata Administrative Services (TAS)! The search engine giant is amongst the Top-3 most valuable organisations in the world and is known for its relaxed and fun work environment, as we have been told in this video by a student who landed a PPO with the company.
Next up are two of the three MBB firms (the third is not too far behind), McKinsey & Co. and BCG - the most desirable consulting recruiters in 2018. Offering pay packages higher than most domains, these companies have an enigmatic yet glamorous appeal to them, as has been made very clear by data since 2012. Everyone wants to learn "the McKinsey way", and it is the top consulting firm in this list. Check out this report to view a campus wise split to find out which recruiters dominate at the respective top b-schools in the country.
The dominant firms in this report continue to be McKinsey & Co., the Boston Consulting Group and Bain & Co., a trend that has been followed ever since the inception of the InsideIIM Recruitment Survey. IBM has made a come-back to this report after not making the cut for 4 consecutive years. Accenture Strategy and Deloitte Consulting feature in the Top-5 list of the top consulting firms/recruiters, edging out American firm A.T. Kearney. For MBA students, the big names such as MBB, the Big 4 of accounting, Accenture, and A.T. Kearney takes precedence over smaller, relatively younger firms such as Alvarez & Marsal and Oliver Wyman. Post-MBA professionals are more interested in the offerings of smaller firms. TSMG, the TATA Group's management consulting arm, has also re-surfaced to the Top-10 for MBA Alumni. Read on to find out what factors you too must keep in mind while shortlisting a consulting firm to work at!

Ever since the inception of the InsideIIM Recruitment Survey, Unilever and P&G have dominated the rankings for the most desirable Sales & Marketing recruiters, as well as the most desirable FMCG companies to work with.

When it comes to the FMCG domain though, HUL and P&G still dominate the game!
Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and Amazon (in that order) are the Top-5 most desirable companies, based on the average ratings by the MBA community. A new entrant to the fray, Tesla, that has been added to the InsideIIM Recruitment Survey for the first time, has immediately made it to the Top-10 most desirable companies to work within the Technology space.
The general trend followed indicates that the MBA community is largely influenced by the brand value of behemoths in the Tech & E-commerce space, and is also drawn to companies driven by innovation and cutting edge technology. The companies in this report are perceived as some of the most exciting and glamorous companies to work for. Read on to find out why these companies stand out and which Indian startups are loved by b-school students!
India's most desirable General Management recruiter is the Tata Administrative Services (TAS), the leadership program which has been run by the TATA group for decades in India. For all three segments of respondents - Current MBA Students, MBA Alumni, and MBA Aspirants, TAS is the most desirable leadership program to work with and has been ever since the inception of the InsideIIM Recruitment Survey series.
In fact, The Tata Administrative Services (TAS), Aditya Birla Group (ABG), General Electric (GE), and Mahindra Group have continuously dominated these rankings. It is highly impressive that TAS has consistently stayed No.1 for 6 years for MBA students and Alumni, only being dethroned once in 2015 by the Mahindra Group and GE. This trend continued in 2018 as well! Once again, these conglomerates have proven to be the first-choice for MBA students looking to join their well-structured Leadership Programmes and work for some of the world's top organisations. Read on to find out what other trends emerge over the years and why these leadership programs dominate the general management space in this report!
