Do the B4 give out Macbooks to those in Technology heavy roles?

Our data scientists and big data software engineers can get macs. They often seem to end up using them to access their Windows VMs though

At Deloitte you can get one with PPMD sign off

I joined Deloitte Digital, after my offer was made and I accepted I requested a Macbook. I have been fortune to not needing the VM until my current engagement and I want to throw it out the window. Unfortunately many companies pay our fees but haven't made it to 2018 yet and a lot of older software needs a windows machine. But getting a client laptop which often is the case so that helps.

I use an iPad Pro, not really a Macbook though..

Not possible at EY ☹️

Yep I have one
