McKinsey engagements vary in duration and typically last 1 to 6 months, so each new project is another opportunity to address real challenges with our clients, collaborate with colleagues, and learn new skills. Our offices also organise regular social events, from Thursday evening drinks and sports gatherings to sailing trips and community efforts—and our annual Inspire event brings together all our consultants in the Middle East with leading thinkers from around the world.
The variety of projects and the breadth of opportunities mean that our consultants often take varied paths in their careers at McKinsey—and beyond. Each year, McKinsey is involved in thousands of projects in 60 or more countries. Based on their experiences, our consultants usually focus on a specific function or industry that interests them.
