Hi all. I would like to ask those colleagues who worked in different MBB firms - what sound cultural differences you see between firms?

I would say that the culture is very different by office and country, so hard to compary. In general:

  • Bain - more local, small, family
  • BCG - more outgoing, local
  • McKinsey - More global, serious and conservative

Again, it is very subjective and is different from country to country


Thank you Vlad! — Anonymous on Sep 12, 2018
