How much time before you are usually counseled our at McK in US? Let’s say you start in January, what’s the normal counseled out time for an average below average contributor?

In general at MBB you have to be performing well below expectations to get counseled out within a tenure. You typically see people transitioned at promotion points (i.e., they just aren't promoted and are let go). This generally means ~2 years at either the post UG or MBA level.

To make your listings more appealing to potential buyers, realtors should include home decor that reminds the clients to something from their childhood. It's a bit weird what I'm saying but I included some old popular Norman Rockwell paintings (not original ofc) and most of my clients have mentioned how they feel "right at home" with those frames hanging up
