Roland Berger in Dubai

Hey,

Was wondering if anyone has some infos on Roland Berger in Dubai. Was thinking especially what the office culture is like, what the main projects and tasks at the moment are, and what the general impression is.

Would be happy to get some insights. Thanks!

One of my collegues at OW Dubai was ex-RB so happy to provide some perspective.

Overall they are a well regarded shop in Dubai. Unlike MBB and OW in the Middle East, they do quite a bit of non-public sector work. Clients mostly include big manufacturing companies and oil & gas. RB could be a good place if you want to get staffed across the Middle East [MBBs you will find tend to me more KSA centric].

I haven't heard many positives on the office culture. Being a smaller shop, projects tend to have very lean staffings, resulting in longer hours and high pressure. Given the non-public sector work, the project budgets also tend to be squeezed and as such perks are definately not as nice as the other top-tier consultancies.

Hope that helps.

Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar

Solved 35.4k times
Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar Onlinestar, an online retailer of furniture and garden products (core business), has grown significantly in recent years as a result of an expansion of its product portfolio. The company mainly imports goods from Chinese manufacturers but also operates its own production of cat lavatories (special business) in Eastern Europe. The company sells its goods via Amazon and ebay, and recently via an online shop on its website. Despite this development, the financial ratios have deteriorated in recent years. In particular, gross profit margin decreased significantly. Combined with a significant increase in shipping costs, this led to a negative result for the first time in the recently ended fiscal year and a resulting strained financial situation. Against the background of expected stagnating sales for the current financial year, short-term action is required. The board of Onlinestar asks you for an analysis of the reasons for the negative result as well as a derived recommendation for action. As a consultant, you should bring in your knowledge in online trading and develop solutions. In addition, the management board would like to receive a sales and gross profit plan from you for the current financial year.
