Thought I would be upset, but I'm not: got reasonably good feedbacks (everything was good except the case: strong leadership skills, strong influence & interpersonal skills, strong entrepreneurial experience, ...). Only prepared cases for 10 days, which is not enough I imagine. Anyways, I'm out of this process with the feeling that Big 4'ers and the likes are pretty good in their field - not talking about strategy here. Tricking Specialist candidates into thinking McK Digital is a real thing won't help attracting best talents, in my opinion. Especially when you tell them during interviews that "their experience is a perk, but not a big deal as the McK network is full of IT experts you can leverage".
