McKinsey Mid-Atlantic

McKinsey in the Mid-Atlantic

Our Washington, Philadelphia, and New Jersey offices are as diverse and dynamic as the region itself. We serve leading companies from a rich mix of industries, including pharmaceuticals, health care, consumer goods, financial services, infrastructure, energy, materials, and advanced industries. We also work with philanthropic foundations and federal, state, and city authorities.

Our people represent more than 50 nationalities and come from many different backgrounds—MBAs, lawyers, doctors, academics, and entrepreneurs—bringing a wealth of experience to our client work. Our culture is high energy, entrepreneurial, creative and supportive. We help our people to follow their passions and accomplish their goals, ranging from starting up a business to initiating a public service project.

The Mid-Atlantic is a place of new beginnings: the launch pad for innovations like McKinsey’s Recovery and Transformation Services, which help to turn around distressed businesses, and McKinsey Social Initiative, a non-profit exploring solutions to complex social challenges. We also shape debate on economic issues through the McKinsey Global Institute, and pioneer fresh approaches in our industry hubs for biopharma, hospital systems, and global health.
