Does anyone have experience working at/with Periscope at McKinsey? What are your feelings on WLB, relationship with rest of McKinsey, culture, etc ? Looking at product management/design roles at the company. Thank you in advance. McKinsey & Company

Evolving practice, limited learning, very limited/no exposure to onsite opportunities, bad work life balance, repetitive work (as you have to work on the same solution across all the clients)

Periscope comes under Mckinsey Knowledge Centre which is basically the back end office. Mostly you will come across support based projects which requires you to work for 18-24 months for the same client.

- Working under one of the practices which uses Periscope for 3+ years.

Thanks for your insights! You mention evolving practice - do you think the practice (and platform) are evolving to address the cons you list or no?

I hope it addresses the concerns. Hasn't happened as yet and I am personally not very positive about any sudden change.

I recently left 10 years of agency (a mix of PR and ad, 5 years at my last shop) for a director role client side. I left agency because I was sick of the clients I didn’t care about, and if I’m being honest, the grind that’s always glamorized. The client side role was my dream company (so I thought), and it has turned out to be the most unbelievably boring move I’ve ever made. The culture is brutal, the pace dead slow. I’ve been there 8 months and feeling so lost. Any perspective or advice?

I realized 2015 I earned more money in my career than I ever have and sadly I never recovered after I was let go. 5 years later I still earn less but I love my job and love that it took me to a different city with its unique challenges. Took me a long time to be happy with this. Thought I’d share in case anyone else has similar career stories ♥️

What advice would you all have for my relative looking for entry-level cyber security jobs? Seems like entry-level stuff has dried up in this era. He has a BS in cyber security from an average university but only has experience working at their help desk. (Note: I’m in cyber at Deloitte but stumbled into it from strategy background, so I don’t have the experience he needs to learn from.)
