Salary wise, yes.

No. Specialists don’t act in a direct “manager” capacity. Specialists are McK Associate equivalents.

Thanks very helpful!

What’s the level structure at M? Analyst, associate, senior associate, manager?

what’s the ‘specialist’ track hierarchy? like are you specialist for life?

This big 4 always carry tapes to measure your performance. 2. I recently joined a witch company and here are my inputs A. Latest tech stakes but slow pace of work B. No long working hours (gov job)

Currently recruiting for McKinsey’s Risk practice as a lateral BA from Big 4. I enjoy Risk engagements and would be happy to spend most of my time doing them, but was wondering how possible it would be to dabble in some traditional Strategy / Corp Fin studies or work with consultants in other functions (Transformation, M&S, etc.)?
