Mckinsey is hiring associates for its operations and implementation practices. Implementation associates have the same career trajectory as generalists and are often staffed on the same projects (same comp, similar timeline to EM). If you have interviewed with McK in the past (made it past first round for example) and/or familiar with interview process, I would highly suggest applying for fall consideration. Nice route for post MBA experienced hires or experienced hires in general.

Interviewed with a company, had discussions with two MD’s, a senior manager, and a senior associate. Now the recruiter has not gotten back to me. Am I getting ghosted? I realized I don’t have anyone else’s emails from the company.

Our company usually does performance evaluations in June of each year. Our pay philosophy is not clear. We usually give a COLA in January each year, somewhere around 2% and if an employee performed well, they get above the 2%. I have suggested we change our process to have a clear pay philosophy with increases tied to performance, with goals tied to overall goals of the organization. What is your process? Are you doing performance evals during COVID?

How much does one get paid post an MBA in Canada? What does the typical range look like? The schools we are looking at are - Schulich, UBC Sauder and Rotman. Since the tuition fee is pretty steep at these schools, I am wondering if the ROI would be decent.
