Big 3 are all great - but firmly believe McK is more focused on the team aspect of consulting and people development.

Growing so quickly, working with wonderful people, and feeling like you're really having an impact on something important


Downers

It's not a 9-5 job, and it can be pretty exhausting.


Comments

For Ph.D.'s looking to get into mangement consulting, take a look at the PhD/MD/JD percentages for the companies you're looking at. All of them are artificially bumped up by the Masters candidates from Europe, so the difference between McKinsey and the other firms is even higher than it appears globally. They know and value candidates with backgrounds other than a straight MBA, and have enough experince to know how to get us up to speed quickly.
