How is the situation for MBB firms currenty in Dubai? Is the business picking up? I am thinking of moving to the region from Europe and got offers from BCG, Bain and Kearney. Would be nice to get some insights on the culture and business outlook esp. since COVID. Are there significant differences in terms of the travel policies among these firms. In Europe I know that BCG is quite relaxed, when it comes to their travel policies.

Culture: Kearney > BCG > Bain
$: Kearney > BCG > Bain (correct me if I am wrong and I am curious. Which firm offered the most $?)
Size: BCG > Kearney > Bain
How they did in 2020: Kearney = Bain > BCG
Outlook in 2021: no idea
Travel policies: no idea. I think they are pretty comparable

Congratulations!

Wait...but you *didn’t* “make that statement.” 😂

Kearney is doing really well in the region but BCG probably provides the best exits globally. You can do a LinkedIn search to see headcount by company (just filter countries / company name.) Kearney is not as big as BCG but has sufficient scale in the region and a good culture (for ME standards anyway.)
I wouldn’t touch Bain with a ten foot pole based on what my friends there tell me about the culture. Additionally, the brand in the region is weak.
