Hi Analyst, happy to help here! feel free to DM me :)

When I went though, McK did hire specifically into Ops and BTO (now Digital) with the expectation of 50/50 practice vs generalist mix. They also hired directly into MIG and I don’t remember if there was generalist crossover expectation. Everything else, the majority of roles, was pure generalist.

Thanks! That sounds like what I’ve heard. It’s just confused me because on calls with current employees they’ll sometimes give me conflicting information, but that clears my doubts. Appreciate the reply!

(Cont) despite using language such as entering as a “generalist” consultant. It seems to me that at Bain, for example, you can enter as a true generalist but McK wants earlier specialization. I was just curious as to how accurate I was interpreting this/if anyone who works there could explain? Thanks!
