Good luck! Make sure your behavioral is solid...I know they emphasize that a lot

PEI (all you need to know is on the website) & frameworks that work for you. IMO the practice cases are very helpful to use as a starting point for prep. Be yourself, remember that you’re a human, and good luck!

like

Agree with C1 - your behavioral must be solid. Above the general cases & PEI remember to keep your confidence. Make sure you have a strong rationale behind your decisions, be prepared to answer “are you sure?” questions esp towards final round.

Speaking from personal experience (I landed a job at McK once despite my display*)

GOOD LUCK!

*BCG 🐠 i love you

I’m in between having accepted my offer and starting. I’ve read advice recommending getting your WFH set up ready before starting, and want to take that. I assume the answer is “no”, but could I spend my $150 one-time WFH allowance now and submit expense receipts after starting? Any chance they’d pay back spending prior to start date that was within a certain window (my last company allowed this for moving-related expenses, as an example) of the start? McKinsey & Company

I didn’t realize that if someone is a consultant at McK or BCG, whether or not they’re actually doing strategy work is not clear. There’s groups of you guys? So different tracks and promotion and pay grades? Every Bain AC or C is the same — some fluidity in PEG vs GP, but overall same. BCG/McK has different tracks — are some of these tracks “better” or more elite? How can I tell who is actually doing strategy work vs staff augmentation or implementation?
