Careers in the West Coast

Careers in the West Coast

A strong drive to share and engage across multiple interests and ideas. A variety of professional and social events to foster personal connections. That’s life at McKinsey in the western region.


We connect meaningfully with the communities in which we live and support organizations, such as the United Way, Shoah Foundation, and San Francisco Zoo. We also take full advantage of our spectacular natural surroundings, organizing group outings, including skiing in Lake Tahoe, hiking Mount Rainier, whitewater rafting in the Rocky Mountains, and surfing in Malibu.


Every day we actively cultivate our interests and press pause at work to participate in programs such as “Take Time,” where we take 1 or 2 months off to focus on personal passions. In fact, since its inception, our office has led the way with the highest annual uptake of this program across North America.
