McKinsey Q&A: Agnes

– Meet Agnes, an engagement manager within our Operations practice, based in Lyon.

Interviewer: What sets McKinsey apart?

Agnes: How well the organization takes care of its people. Our professional development team has worked with me to help me find opportunities as close to home as possible, which is especially important to me, as the mother of three young children.

Interviewer: What's the best thing about your role?

Agnes: The constant variety. Each engagement is an opportunity to tackle a new challenge and learn. I've worked on steel, chemicals, apparel retailing, and telecommunications.

Interviewer: Would you consider people who do not have MBAs—like yourself—to apply?

Agnes: Yes, experienced hires and the expertise they bring are deeply valued here. Joining after years of operations experience has been an asset for me as I interact with my clients.
