How to find office-specific information?

Anonymous A

Hello,

Company websites are quite informative but I am struggling to find some office-specific information online. I would like to learn whether the specific office I will apply is growing, or which areas they focus more and in which areas they will grow more. Specifically, I will apply for Istanbul offices of MBB and Oliver Wyman. Do you think I am missing something or are these good topics for discussions with consultants from these companies?

Thank you!

Hi!

These are the good questions. You can discuss it with the consultants on the events / reaching them via friends / while networking.

In terms of the topics you can also check:

  • What are the primary industries
  • Any public clients and well-known projects
  • What are the stories of success (people with non-traditional backgrounds)
  • Successful Exits

Best!
