A friend has offers for Bain and BCG Dubai at the consultant level (joining just after his MBA) and he is confused on which one to take. Any thoughts to help him make a decision? Things he cares about are total compensation, career progression, mobility/ transfers to other offices and casework focus on tech (if any).

BCG digital team is broken. Weak leadership and market presence. Bain is not better so my advice is to go with people your friend clicks better with. People first and work will follow.

BCG is nice place. I’ve heard about it from a friend once and he said only good things about it. Actually it all depends on your ability to fit in. I find Bain a super interesting place to work at. I really love the projects and my team. I never felt the need to compare it with any other firm. But go with whichever give better money. Really push as hard as you can if negotiation is an option

A lot of BCG Dubai folk transfer to our other offices (London, NYC etc.) We do work on tech cases as part of our TMT and PIPE practices We're growing very fast, both in the region and globally, so I'd imagine career progression should be good as well Total comp he should be able to compare on his own, since he has received both offers

Need advice. I received an offer from a company after searching for a job for MONTHS and submitting hundreds of applications. Currently unemployed.

I finally have heard back from other companies and am expecting to interview, but the offer requires an answer before then. Any advice?
