Engagement Manager, London

“Your experience at McKinsey is what you make of it. There are no borders, no one is restricting your path—it’s just you, your passion, and a little bit of courage. If you are open to riding some unknown waves, just raise your hand—there will always be a captain who is looking for a new crew member. Small talk and coffee breaks can lead you to amazing places, doing amazing things. And when you join the crew and are sent off on a project to Germany or South Africa, one thing stays constant: you can count on everyone and everyone will count on you.”


Specialist, London

“The best thing about McKinsey is being surrounded by amazing people. I’ve done more than 20 operations, strategy, and organization projects in different sectors that have taken me to 13 different countries. I was coached from start to end and set up for success. I’ve learned to be flexible, adaptable, and quick and never take no for an answer.”
