Why not just do cloud at big tech? And even Deloitte and ACN have far more robust cloud practices. They've been doing this stuff for years. If you're just looking for a raise, cycling between Deloitte and ACN will get you there with a practice that actually knows what it's doing.

Even if they paid me $120K, I learned a lot and thank them, but McKinsey seems right for me, especially after the interview. McKinsey folks are much more fit for my style.

I can help you! I’m starting at Cloud By Mckinsey next week. Lots of people don’t know about cloud by McKinsey a lot since it’s a new part of McKinsey. And people assume McKinsey is only management consulting. I really encourage you take a step and just chat with the people there Again, I felt comfortable making the transition in a young age as well as there is lots of potential growth with Cloud by McKinsey. People are gonna be looking out for them. The staff is already there, Candid has been around since 2004 and they are all experienced Just imagine it grow and in few years it would be bumping heads with Accenture and Deloitte!

Everyone, I want to join Cloud by McKinsey. I don’t care how many jokes you make regarding it being so young and non-established. I honestly see that as opportunity, that is what I want to see. Deloitte is essentially run by accountants- their leadership makes terrible decisions regarding tech money allocation- just because they started first doesn’t mean others can’t jump in and lead later.

From the outside looking in, I do not buy the idea at all that the Chinese side won't have any influence on US operations. And I think the Oracle deal is on life support too, idk Also, imo, working for the company in any capacity expands its reach and contributes to the ByteDance brand, which I don't want to do. Don't want to stretch this into a political / moral discussion since that's not what you asked for but that's just my hottake. I don't aim to pass judgment on a TikTok option since that's not what this main thread is about.

Don’t. Technical SME roles at McK are literally for pReStiGe.

smart

C1 is right. OP, for what it’s worth, I’m not saying this because McK doesn’t recruit good technical or digital talent - they do. They simply don’t give them any reason to stay. Source: Formerly McK
