I was wondering if there are companies in high-tech that are perceived by social masses to be of the same prestige as KKR/goldman sachs/warburg pincus are to the finance world or Bain/BCG are to the management consulting world.
There are some high-tech companies everybody has heard of - intel, yahoo, IBM. However, unlike finance world where some brand names are correleted with power and prestige, I, having had multiple years of experience in high-tech, still have not seen similar correlative effect in high-tech. There exist numerous small companies that are virtually unknown to anyone who is not fully immersed in high-tech world, but are highly regarded and have the prestige factor (if you can define such a factor for high-tech) by people in high-tech community.
What do people here think - is there something as desirable/prestigious/selective in high-tech industry as KKR/top-tier VCs/GS are in finance?
