I will be joining Strategy& Dubai office in October after completing my studies in Europe. I interviewed with MBB in the Middle east and went to the final rounds but could not make it through. I need your advice on the following:
I have heard that S& practice in Dubai is really strong and they are competing with BCG and Mckinsey for top projects. Is this true? Do they have really have a strong brand value?
I am really interested in making a career in consulting, go for an MBA and come back to continue with the firm. Recent posts on WSO paint a dark picture about Strategy& as a firm and its culture. Is this all true? Or has it improved in the recent times? Can you also tell me about the culture at its ME office?
What tips would you give me to perform better as an associate and get faster promotions and a sponsored MBA track?
Please help me!
Thank you :)
