What are the top practices/industries for Boston Consulting Group , Strategy& and Kearney in the Middle East? I’m assuming McK is pretty much spread across the areas.

Strategy& is the regional leader in TMT. All the sexy projects - Gaming, eComm, OTT, we snap them up



Public sector for all.

Public sector and energy. McK is not as strong as BCG here

Hahaha says who? You? McK is way more diversified in terms of geographies, sectors and clients served in the Middle East. Are they as profitable? That is a different question altogether but McK is much better represented above everyone else

Just spent a couple of months with our Defence and Aerospace team there, great people and cool projects

What should be package for HR/academic counsellor role in pharma edtech, 3 year pharma exp.


Career advice: I became an HR mgr/BP relatively early on in my career so have 7 years BP exp. and 9 overall. I work in pharma as a Sr. BP/manager now. I’d like to make a move into an AD or higher role but seem to only get consideration for lateral moves. Not sure if it’s because I don’t have enough experience or if I’ve never had direct reports? How did you make that first jump? I’d need to relocate for anything at my current org which is not possible for me right now. Thanks for insights!


Any chance my firm matches an outside firm (2 separate firms with offers in the same range, actually) for the exact same position if the salary increase is almost 40% (~$40k)?

Anyone have experience doing this?
