No, but I have worked on several UN projects. Did not know they had a business consulting team!

C1 how did you get the opportunity to work in several UN projects?

Have you been stationed abroad or do you mostly stay out in one location

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
