I’ve seen home grown SAs (starting at Analyst) get there in 3-5 years. SA is our typical post-MBA level, and outside of that it’s entirely dependent on your past experience. We do hire out of undergrad for analysts but not a ton.

PEPI Europe does not, and managers who transfer from other teams are usually SA

I’m only aware of Analysts being hired out of undergrad. The Sr. Associate job requisition says 3-6 years of experience for new hires but I think it’s closer to 5 years experience than 3.

Makes sense, appreciate the insight!

I came in as an SA with 8 years of experience. Made manager in 2 years and Director another 3 years.

Would you say that’s more or less average?

I came in as an SA with 5 YoE relevant experience. Hoping to make M in 1-2 years

No

If you are coming as an experienced manager can you make director in 1-2 years ?

Do MBB hire non-nationals to work in emerging-market offices or do they only transfer existing employees? Would be very interested in talking to a Westerner who’s done this. Am US-based now, but with lots of international experience + language skills, thinking of switching things up.

Just joined McK as a BA from a master’s with 1 yoe. Can someone help me understand how the comp progression looks like? I heard your TC becomes your base next year. I know we get reviews twice a year, but does comp adjust accordingly as well? What’s the ballpark comp figure from 2nd year BA to EM (assuming I get it)? McKinsey & Company

Business etiquette question: when traveling with your boss is it okay to ride your boss's coattails with regard to airline status. For example, he gets free checked bags so he will check mine with his to get higher unloading priority and to save the company a few shekels. I also use the priority lines with him when we need to go to the airline counter and when we board the plane. I am American & travel mostly to latin American countries (since feelings towards queues might change on culture).

Another analyst (male indian) starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). What should I do

Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting. I have offers from KPMG and Deloitte, and we are looking to start a family ASAP (we have been actively trying and I have a feeling it would be just my luck to start a new job and find out I’m pregnant). Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary. TY!

Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........
