About Us

McKinsey & Company is a global management consulting firm. We
are the trusted advisor to the world's leading businesses, governments,
and institutions.

We strive for world-shaping client impact

We work with leading organizations across the private, public and social sectors. Our scale, scope, and knowledge allow us to address problems that no one else can. We have deep functional and industry expertise as well as breadth of geographical reach. We are passionate about taking on immense challenges that matter to our clients and, often, to the world.

We work with our clients as we do with our colleagues. We build their capabilities and leadership skills at every level and every opportunity. We do this to help build internal support, get to real issues, and reach practical recommendations. We bring out the capabilities of clients to fully participate in the process and lead the ongoing work.

We are a network of leaders

We look to hire individuals with leadership potential, integrity, a sharp analytical mind, creativity, and the ability to work with people at all levels in an organization.

Those who come to McKinsey join people bound by a shared set of values and a culture of support, caring, trust, respect, and interdependence. We go to extraordinary lengths to support the people we hire to succeed. We provide them with unrivaled opportunities for growth and global impact. This passion to help continues in our alumni, who remain connected to and engaged with our firm and its people.

We develop unparalleled management insights

Working with our clients on their most challenging issues requires deep industry and functional expertise. We invest significant time and effort in developing and renewing a knowledge base that offers unique perspectives and insights to our clients. Knowledge development occurs within our eighteen industry practices, eight functional practices, and the McKinsey Global Institute.

We apply our understanding of market and industry forces to develop long-term macroeconomic perspectives. We convene the most influential thinkers to debate the most pressing issues, and publish our thinking in journals such as the McKinsey Quarterly.

We are committed to social impact and sustainability

We use the intellectual, financial and convening power of our firm to help address some of the world’s most pressing problems. We do this through our work with private, public, and social sector organizations, through our investments in research on topics such as education, and through our extensive pro bono and volunteer work.

We draw on our functional and industry expertise to support organizations that are seeking to tackle the toughest societal challenges. Each year, we help leading foundations, nonprofits, and multilateral institutions address issues such as disease, poverty, climate change, and natural disasters. Our firm also seeks to advance knowledge on topics relevant to society, including through the contributions of our economics think tank, the McKinsey Global Institute.

We also invest to advance understanding of sustainability and resource productivity issues, including carbon abatement, the economics of strategic resources such as water, land, energy and materials, and the circular economy. We aim to lay out the challenges and opportunities for sustainable growth and climate resilience, and propose pathways for transformational change. We are addressing our own environmental footprint through a range of investments, policies, and process changes in the provision of our services and the management of our buildings.
