At McKinsey, you work with intelligent, committed people every day, and there’s always space to share ideas. It’s a great place for learning—everyone is given the opportunity to grow.
Opportunity to grow
I’d been working for a high profile publicly listed company in Malaysia for many years, but I felt I was no longer learning and growing–I’d become too comfortable in my position. So I thought: why not apply to McKinsey? That was six years ago and I haven’t looked back. I joined the firm to support a partner who’d moved here from Germany. After two years, I moved into a team leader role. I’ve had a great experience throughout—really challenging and energizing.
A space for sharing and learning
What’s special about McKinsey is that everyone is focused on impact and relevance. You work with intelligent, committed people every day, and there’s always space to share ideas. It’s a great place for learning—everyone is given the opportunity to grow at McKinsey. For example, I’ve been on numerous training programmes, on everything from communication skills to negotiation skills; and people constantly give you coaching, mentoring and support.
Turning passion into impact
We are also encouraged to share our skills and teach others, and we are given the freedom to pursue areas of interest and make McKinsey our own. One of the highlights of my time here has been to travel to our other offices in Southeast Asia to teach colleagues how to produce perfect client documents. Another highlight was being part of a team focused on improving education for schoolchildren—a topic I am passionate about. In fact, I’m now planning to study for a degree in early childhood learning, and McKinsey is supporting me all the way.
