Hi all, I've been lurking around this forum for a bit and have heard the term "blue chip firm/company" dropped several times. From what I gather, this normally refers to:

Top tier Management Consulting firm (MBB)
Bulge Bracket Investment banking or Private equity (MS, Goldman, KKR)
Software Development or Product Management at a top tech firm (Google, Facebook, or a unicorn)

However, it's clear you have to be doing the right sort of roles at those firms. Can you guys provide some input on what else you think falls in the "Gold", "Silver", and "Bronze" categories?

For me personally - I have 3 total years of postgrad WE - 1 at a F100 company doing Sales, then 2+ at one of Facebook/Google/LinkedIn/Pinterest/Snapchat doing Sales and Partnerships (2 promotions). Would that be Gold, Silver, or Bronze at first glance?

I would call your experience at those tech companies as Gold but as you mentioned the more important quality schools will be assessing your impact and specific results you have a driven as a member of this company. So your work experience will be seen as strong, but make sure to highlight the specific impact and results you have driven in your resume and essays (if relevant).

Ultimately, schools that are feeders to business schools, really desired by applicants as post-MBA destinations, or simply brand name firms tend to rank highest in the minds of the ad comm when evaluating how your firm will ultimately rank
