I wouldn't complain about that one as freelance. (Unless you really meant it? I read it as sarcasm but may be wrong...)

I hear a lot of bad things recently about Strategy& Middle East, in complete paradox with Booz & Co historical presence in the region (they used to talk about MBBB in the past): - Very bad Inchallah culture, completely dominated by Lebanese coming from AUB. - Greatly overstaffed (trend began weeks before covid) with tons of people on the beach. - Unhealthy competition between partners (they have more than 50 in the region). - Outsourcing their technical work to cheaper PwC. Any info?

Curious if you ever started at an agency and knew it was a mistake right away? Does it change how you interview now, or questions you ask?

Hey guys- I have an intern buddy who was assigned to me and they’re just down the block from me. They want to meet up and I feel awful because they came to the city to intern and they don’t know anyone. It is not policy to meet up rn but if I was to just meet the person in a park for a coffee is that not a good move?
