I do. That’s why I asked.

McK if you want to help KSA hunt down critics. BCG if you want to help KSA look good while doing that. Sadly, it’s not an exaggeration. The most laughable is how McK is publishing and pushing their climate change “study” about how our Earth and everything we love is going nuts while at the same time helping oil dictators constructing some of the most wasteful and ecologically stupid cities on Earth. I mean, ok fine McK, if you want to be evil, do that, but don’t be bigot about it then.

Obviously Accenture is better than BAH in the region. It is doing really well.

It's McKinsey and BCG at the top then everyone else. Booz and Co was strong until Strategy & bought them, but then a lot of their best bounced for BCG and McKinsey. Bain is much smaller in the ME than the other two MBB firms. OW seemed to have a strong presence. I was BCG Dubai, not speaking as an EY observer.

BCG, Mck, OW, ATK, Bain, S&, RB BCG is by far the biggest and growing, mostly KSA public sector Mck is big but they are shifting to private sector outside of KSA OW has been growing a lot in the past years, hiring and opening more offices across the region, same work as BCG ATK is growing fast as well and in size is probably bigger than Bain, similar type of projects as MBB Bain is very small here due to a financial services private sector focus S& used to be big and prestigious but the merger is slowly killing their brand RB small in the ME, but growing I don’t believe that Accenture Deloitte and EY are even comparable in terms of projects and salary

Since the buy out from PwC, Booz has lost a lot of its staff to competitors from partners to juniors and is not as successful as it used to be in the region.

Monitor Deloitte not mentioned at all? They got around 60 staff in Dubai, are they doing any strategy work at all?
