I always push myself to do better

I have met many people genuinely interested in seeing me grow

Our goals as an organization are twofold; helping major companies reach ambitious and complex goals, and developing people. In my opinion, McKinsey maintains a good balance between my personal development and the complexity of the work I have been doing. As I have grown and become more comfortable in my role, I have been given more responsibility. That kind of investment in people means a lot to me. We are also constantly giving and receiving feedback—on anything from working with clients to presenting data. The payoff is great and I consider the people I work with my close friends. I still keep in touch with almost every project manager I have worked with.

Strong solutions are always a team effort

I was recently involved in a project concerning an international retailer, and we were trying to get a better understanding of their store network. We approached it first by gathering every data and statistic available to us and ended up with a very top-down perspective. We then decided that we also needed to spend time inside the actual stores. Observing and talking with the individual store managers gave us a completely different perspective and their thoughts ended up shaping the bigger picture.
