Careers in India

Working at McKinsey India

McKinsey India is a “leadership factory” and many of our alumni lead organisations in the private, public, and social sectors in India and across the world.

Office culture

While all our consultants have a strong record of academic or professional achievement, they come from many different disciplines—not only business and economics, but also engineering, medicine, the arts, and humanities. We look for people with excellent problem-solving and people skills, leadership potential, healthy curiosity, and the courage to take initiative. We hire people from all backgrounds.

In every one of our client engagements, we bring together the best team of minds from around the world, drawing on the broadest range of industry and functional experience. Teams share a structured problem-solving approach, where all opinions and options are considered, researched, and analysed carefully before recommendations are made. No two days are the same—at McKinsey, we innovate constantly, collaborate to solve meaningful challenges, and apply unique approaches to problem solving. We own our domains of expertise.

Our work is intense, but we also have fun and celebrate our successes together. Our office retreats involve outdoor activities such as trekking, river rafting, and games. We also have sports teams and weekly get-togethers.

Development opportunities

We work with a range of organisations—Indian companies, public and social sector bodies, and multinationals—on a variety of strategic, operational, organisational, and technological issues.

As the biggest and oldest management consultancy in India, McKinsey is the top recruiter on the major Indian campuses and the number one employer of choice. Over 70 percent of Fortune’s Most Admired Companies are served by McKinsey. Our clients number around 30 of the top 50 Indian companies, from a wide variety of industries including banking, IT, pharma, fast-moving consumer goods, automobiles, and energy.

With our excellent training programs, team-based approach, commitment to mentorship, and global presence, McKinsey offers you unequalled opportunities to develop your career. Our alumni are in key leadership roles across the country.

Working in small teams, you’ll have critical client responsibilities from day one. You will get to work in a new situation in a different sector with different people every few months. Our recruits develop into exceptional leaders while having fun and enjoy flexible lifestyles.

Community involvement

McKinsey has worked with the Government of India, state governments, and local authorities, as well as with the world’s leading organisations, to solve complex societal challenges related to global health, economic development, education, water issues, philanthropy, and climate change. An integral part of our values is to give back to the communities we work in, and often on a pro bono basis.
