If someone asks me what McKinsey means to me, I will answer with confidence that it is a place where you can truly enjoy solving management issues with the client and at the same time can grow as a professional at unbelievable speed.

“For me, the key to delivering value is to put yourself in our client’s shoes. You can do great analysis, but it’s only valuable if it helps solve the problem the client is worried about.”

Japanese companies seek the support that ‘only McKinsey can do’ not only to develop domestic business strategy but also to pursue global growth opportunities. In such an environment, I am proud to be contributing to Japan’s globalization

Yuito Yamada

Partner

“Being a consultant allows me to create value and apply problem-solving skills beyond Japan’s borders, especially as McKinsey focuses on helping Japanese companies globalize.”

The first thing I was told at the Firm was ‘Shape your own McKinsey.’ I was surprised that I could seek and choose how to develop my career and serve the industries that interested me. But those exact words are true, and the people in the office are very supportive.

“Being part of a global firm means that you not only tap into other people’s knowledge and expertise but that you adopt a global mindset as well.”
