At times, it is mentioned that MBB has the advantage of support functions to help the consultants with things like ppt creation, design, some research and also data analysis (perhaps some other 'functions' as well?). I am wondering 3 things:
1. Are these only specific to MBB (or maybe even only M and one of the Bs?) and is it like globally or office-specific? How about firms like OW, RB, ATK, etc.?
2. What are they doing/providing exactly? Does it mean that the consultants are not building slides, but mostly populate the contents (and of course think and decide what to put/show) and arranging the pages in the offices who provide these supports?
3. To what extent entry-level consultants can leverage those supports?
