Why didn’t this age well

Expect a long slog, 20+ interviews and a true endurance test. Interview process itself was not hard - lots of questions on what I could bring to the firm / who I knew in an area they were trying to build out.

Sorry I deleted this app during the holidays. I did not, instead joined one of Alix / A&M. Similar compensation, proven track record of integrating senior hires and I had a strong internal network at the firm than McKinsey.
