Meet our faculty

“I joined McKinsey after participating in a recruiting event. It was at this event where I first discovered the type of work the firm does. I quickly understood that what made this place special was its people. All my colleagues at McKinsey bring different skillsets and unique knowledge. This diversity enables solving complex problems in creative ways and creates a fantastic, fun learning environment.”

Ana Cristina, specialist, London

"Having joined McKinsey from the construction industry, I leverage my previous knowledge to help make an impact. I work with senior clients on their major projects, while broadening my experience across multiple industries, including infrastructure, manufacturing, and energy sectors. I am proud of a project I worked on in the public sector, where I helped with the program and planning. I get a lot of satisfaction knowing that our initiative saved money and enabled the client to operate more sustainably."

Giedre, specialist, London

“After getting to know McKinsey through multiple local and regional recruiting events, I knew it was the right place for me. Since joining the Operations Excellence Program, I’ve further built upon my functional knowledge through trainings and client engagements. I have also found a community of incredibly passionate and inspiring people. Every day is a new adventure, a new challenge, a new McKinsey moment that gives me the energy to keep pursuing both my career and personal goals.”

Vicky, junior specialist, Brussels

“The knowledge, leadership, and diversity within McKinsey—along with its vast global presence—encouraged me to apply. In my role, I work with various global clients within food manufacturing, mining, pharmaceuticals and consumer industries under strong and highly knowledgeable McKinsey leadership. The structured approach and mentoring support available for career progression at the firm has helped me map out my development goals and achieve them steadily. My most memorable project was being part of a McKinsey team with colleagues from the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Poland, and the United Kingdom where I was able to identity a significant cost saving opportunity and was encouraged by my leadership team to present it to the client’s executive committee.”

Sanya, associate, London
