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

Yes for BCG you can be reimbursed up to $250 as long as the purchase was within 30 days of your start date (before or after)

We don’t have the WFH allowance anymore afaik. Pretty sure that ended last year.

we still get a $150 WFH allowance???

Damn. Thanks for the help!

There’s a new hire package you can opt into in your first 30 days (monitor, headset, etc)

I’ve heard about this but haven’t been able to find the link (wanted to pass it on to some friends) - would you mind DMing?

2Y MBA here will be joining McKinsey next year after graduation. I just got an email from McKinsey HR saying my background and social media checks are cleared. However, it is also mentioned in the email that aside from the MBA degree verification after my graduation, “a reinvestigation may also be required If your initial background screening has cleared more than 60 days prior to your start date.” Do they really do background checks again? It takes a long time lol.
