Seems this bowl is full of MBB/T2 with hardly any b4. Is that just the make up of Middle East? Or we just shy on here?

The headcounts in MBB/T2 are crazy, Kearney alone has a headcount of over a thousand consultants, which is probably bigger than the entire consulting practices of EY and KPMG, and only slightly smaller than that of Deloitte.

Advisory (risk, financial, cyber, deals) <> consulting imo. In terms of pure consulting headcount, I was told Deloitte has ~1300 in total. PwC is probably the exception yes.

Hi everyone, currently at MBB in Europe and have a couple of buyside processes coming up where I will need to step aside for several hours at a time on some days to do interviews (up to 3-4h sometimes).

I really want to be open and work collaboratively with my team, but at the same time wondering if that is a big mistake.
