Kearney ME has a great market positioning and fun & diverse (and international) culture. Lots of energy, ambition for growth and great reputation in the market.

Great company in the region. Fun and nice people, WLB of my friends there the best of all consultants in ME (just my subjective perspective). Only downside is if you go back to Europe, there might not be much to go back to

what do you mean by might not be much to go back to

Kearney is not doing very well in some markets in Europe, even shrinking in some, while competitors grow substantially…

Well its your colleagues at Kearney in Zurich, Munich and Dubai that tell me this, Headcounts in GSA, Kearney press release, etc. but yes Dubai and other markets are doing really well (Saudi defense work for example, that is booming right)

Better than B, one of the leaders in the region. WLB bad like everywhere else in ME. Good culture.

Thats a common statement about BCG ME, definitely has some truth to it. Then again, ME people are transferring (successfully) to NYC, SF, LDN, etc. As with everything in consulting, you only get out of it what you push for, and you can push a lot ;)

which firm are you at? No wlb in the ME

Currently head of strategy at a SME. Salary is average so wouldn’t mind a bump, but wlb is good. Previously 4 yrs at a tier-3 strategy consultancy.

Hi, I am hired as senior test engineer for automation testing profile in EY AND WIPRO The reason I am not selecting EY is just because I don't have any practical exposure working in automation testing and I am afraid that it's better to work in Wipro and get practical exposure and then try for big brands like EY. Also, in EY I will be asked to work in client location. Where I might get into difficult situation Anyone would like to comment on this? Is my decision of selecting wipro correct?

I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case.

Should I try reapplying?
