Careers in the United States

Be a part of a team that accelerates your growth, broadens your horizons, and helps you make a lasting difference.

No one day or career is exactly the same here. You'll be encouraged—and fully supported—to make your own McKinsey. This means you will shape your career to reflect your interests and capabilities, striking a balance between professional and personal pursuits.

Each of our offices in the United States is a close-knit community where, through knowledge development, client projects, and social events, we are more than just colleagues.

Whether you are a recent graduate or an experienced professional, you will benefit from the aspects that make McKinsey distinctive: our global reach spanning all sectors and continents, our network of recognized experts, and our world-class learning, training, mentorship, and sponsorship.

Life at McKinsey in the United States

We build strong, enduring relationships with clients, work on issues that matter, and continuously develop skills that help us be at our best. As a firm, we are committed to making sure our colleagues are offered tremendous opportunities and support to pursue professional growth, personal fulfillment, and to lead healthy, full lives. We realize a full life means different things to different people. For some, it’s keeping weekends free, taking dedicated time to volunteer in a foreign country, writing a book, or traveling. For others, it's having access to training, learning new skills, and taking their career on a completely different path.

Your work will be meaningful, creative and original

You’ll work with colleagues and clients to develop transformational solutions. Our colleagues work in every sector and industry, covering topics across business, technology, economic development, and arts and sciences.

We’re defined by our people and united by our values, including our commitment to diversity

You'll work with outstanding people from diverse backgrounds, with an incredible range of knowledge and life experience. You may join one or more of our affinity networks or one of our special interest groups. You will have opportunities to serve your local community and participate in other national partnerships, including United Way, the Trevor Project, and Rethink Food.

You’ll constantly learn and grow

An important aspect of McKinsey’s culture is mentorship. You’ll benefit from informal mentoring relationships as well as more formal coaching and sponsorship. You also will take part in our world-class training programs. We invest more than $200 million every year to make sure you have the right training at in your career. At McKinsey, you will develop faster and go further than anywhere else.
