Working at McKinsey the Netherlands

Our Amsterdam office not only serves all key sectors in the Netherlands but is also a global hub that supports major international companies—and plays a central role in McKinsey’s global knowledge development. 

Our work

We help our clients grapple with tough questions: how to make operations globally competitive, how to plan for and manage expansion into growth markets in the region, and how to put in place organisational structures and processes that drive innovation and long-term performance. In every engagement, our teams share a structured problem-solving approach that considers, researches, and analyses all relevant opinions to develop recommendations. McKinsey engagements typically last one to six months, so each new project is another opportunity to learn and grow.

Our Amsterdam office not only serves all key sectors in the Netherlands but is also a global hub that supports major international companies—and plays a central role in McKinsey’s global knowledge development. We are a global partnership engaged in thousands of projects, with plenty of opportunities across a wide variety of sectors and disciplines. You will have a chance to work all over the world, as well as a tremendous opportunity for personal growth.

Our culture

While our consultants all have a strong record of academic or professional achievement, they come from many different disciplines—not only business and economics but also from engineering, medicine, arts and the humanities. We look for people with excellent problem-solving and people skills, leadership potential, a healthy curiosity, and the courage to take initiative.

The Amsterdam office is home to about 330 consultants. Our work is intense, but we have fun as well. For example, our colleagues organize monthly borrels (in the summer on our rooftop terrace), ski trips, Christmas parties, and office retreats. Moreover, we celebrate successful engagements on the canals of Amsterdam on our office boat—Max—which anyone in the office can use.
