Working at McKinsey Switzerland

McKinsey Switzerland, with its locations in central Zurich and Geneva, is the best of both worlds—a close-knit community and a vibrant mix of people, languages, and nationalities.

The bustling Zurich office is home to more than 260 consultants, while Geneva offers a more familial environment of about 60 consultants. Everybody on the team is encouraged to get together, have fun and inspire one another—whether by joining communities such as Women at McKinsey, GLAM (LGBTQ+) or McKinsey Digital and Quantum Black Switzerland, by taking part in sporting initiatives such as the Swiss Company Triathlon or the SWOrriors soccer team, or by signing up for special-interest clubs like Opera or Wining & Dining. This richly varied office life provides every opportunity for our people to share their interests and connect outside of a work setting.

300+ consultants in two Swiss offices

50% of consultants in the Swiss offices are women

30% of consultants use flexible working models
