I am a recent MBA graduate with an offer from Apple - Demand Supply Planning team, Singapore and currently in the final stages ofBTO, Dubai office. Kind of confused as to which one I should choose and would appreciate any guidance or suggestions.
This is my analysis so far:
McK pros: More interesting and diverse work, better exit options, I have heard BTO consultants also work on general strategy assignments - so would be interesting (Won't mind but not super excited about IT Strategy though)
McK cons: Bad work life balance. Not sure about staying in Dubai for too long. Not sure about reputation of McK Dubai office.
Apple Pros: Like Singapore quite a lot and would prefer over Dubai for long term. Better work life balance in tech. As per my analysis lot of exand IB folks have joined in the similar role so must be good.
Apple Cons - Not sure if I like SCM or Operations. Some planning but role mainly involves execution. Difficult to change industry or function a few years down the line. Not sure if I want to be in Tech sector forever.
My Career Goals: Frankly a little unsure. Though I definitely like Strategy work more than Operations and would prefer a role which is intellectually stimulating and highly analytical. Also not sure if I want to work too hard and put in more than 60 hours per week - so consulting work pressure sounds a little intimidating to me.
Would appreciate your insights and valuable suggestions.
Thanks !! :) :)
