If you enter McKinsey at a higher level than BA i.e. Junior Associate or Associate. Can you still qualify for MBA sponsorship? Thinking about McKinsey in the MENA region and just wondering how I would get back to the states later in my career. The MBA seemed like a legitimate route after two years. Any advice is helpful!

Had an interview for a program manager role. Did my research, got ready for the interview and the recruiter rushed me off the phone, dismissed my answers and was unprofessional. I'm so pissed 😡😡😡

The PwC Transparency report on diversity was co-signed by 3 white people and included multiple stock BIPOC photos. One important group was omitted: retired partners on pensions... 99% white?? 100%?? For this inaugural report the bar has been set very low.

I am an experienced consultant working at Deloitte. A recruiter reached out to me from PWC for a manager position. I have over three years of experience outside of US and a Masters degree from an accredited university in US. What do I need to know to respond to this recruiter. Obviously in the motive here to join would be a higher base salary.
