At McKinsey I am surrounded by the most talented, experienced, and creative individuals.

Expectations for McKinsey

I expected to learn something new every day, but my experience at McKinsey has far exceeded my expectations. Every single day is different. I am constantly given the chance to explore. Not only do I learn about different topics, but I am learning about myself, as an individual and about life.

For me, the most unexpected part of working at McKinsey is the degree of trust you can earn. The standards are very high, but once you prove yourself, you earn a great deal of trust and freedom. This makes you feel like a leader in your own space, accentuates the non-hierarchical nature of the Firm, and makes your personal impact clear on a daily basis.

Charting Your Own Course at McKinsey

I was given the opportunity to explore several sectors. Once I knew I was deeply interested in government strategy and economic development, I was supported in finding opportunities to work in that space, deepen my knowledge, and build relationships with inspiring mentors.

The People at McKinsey

At McKinsey I am surrounded by the most talented, experienced, and creative individuals. All of whom push me to my own limits. Everyone models remarkable qualities. I am truly excited to be part of this community.

Advice for those considering McKinsey

You will constantly have questions coming from multiple angles – from your colleagues, clients, and yourself. These will push your capacity to think, to learn, and to discover to new limits. You must be comfortable with not always knowing the answer, because that is part of our job – figuring out the answer and the questions that remain unanswered.
