McK 🐠 - what are the differences between Round 1 (EM and associate partner interviewers) and Round 2 (partner interviewers). Recruiter assures me there is no difference with cases or structure of interviews but hearing mixed messages. Would appreciate any insight!

Hey all, just wondering if anyone here has been through the referral process with McKinsey? An associate partner referred me two weeks ago and I haven't heard back yet. Trying to align McKinsey with my other interviews so hoping people here can give me a better idea. Also spoke with a senior partner a few days ago who said timeline shouldn't be an issue (after I explained everything) , but not sure if they actually looked into it or not.

How does one break into a big agency from a small one? I am confident I can hang creatively at a big shop, but I have a CD title with no direct reports. This always comes up in interviews and I think it’s killing my chances. I lead projects, but I don’t lead a consistent “team” of writers because we don’t have one (I’m a copy-focused CD). I almost wish I could go back to being an ACD and grow in a bigger agency from there. I feel stuck.
