I’ll be joining McKinsey & Company very soon as an Expert AP & I am excited. I got so many personal welcome messages, which was nice. I’m entering the firm with dedicated sponsors & I feel supported. I know that there will be some long days, hard work, & travel, but I am ready! I’m really eager to learn the McKinsey approach to strategy, problem solving, & communication. My ask is - If you are currently at McKinsey (or have recently been at McKinsey), & you have any advice, please share it. TIA!

My current job is going to let us pick something, and while my answer would be to go to DEFCON 😂 that’s obviously not gonna happen this year.

Hey MBB fish,
I’m considering making the switch to MBB and wanted to understand what training and development look like at these firms. Came to consulting post b school and there’s been almost no support to learn the actual job and want to see if that’s unique to my firm or if you’re always expected to learn as you go.
