Anyone have insights into MD roles at Ankura? I can imagine that 40 hour weeks aren't the norm, but what's the culture like? Is everyone working for the firm looking to leave?

While I’m not in the Cyber practice, I spoke to a colleague who is. The hours vary depending on the area within the practice, as you probably can guess. Their motto is "One Team, One Fight," which he said reflects their focus on collaboration, respect and camaraderie. There are about 120 people in their practice. On a more general level, I have enjoyed the culture at Ankura. I’ve been here for two years and have really liked everyone I’ve worked with.
