Is it easier/harder to recruit for mckinsey implementation vs a generalist role for mba full time recruiting? I kinda like ops work, but wondering if there's any issues with supply & demand re: hiring.

Not McKinsey, but best advice I ever got in recruiting was Don’t try to game the system by applying for the role that seems “easier to get”. Apply for the one you’re passionate about and qualified for. It’ll work out better.

It’s the same. The interview process and bar is the same (same interviews, same assessment criteria, etc). In MI you are expected to be a integrative (our word for generalist) consultant + have exceptional client hands and build deep skills in client coaching and how to set clients up for execution success. MI is not just ops - it cuts across many practices (ops is a large presence though). Check out MI marketing & sales for example of non ops.

It is neither easier nor harder. Ops and MI are both integrative consulting roles. If applying to Ops or MI, it is expected you have 2-4 years of experience in that area. Same for Digital. An interest in the topic is not enough to get picked up for an interview. If you don’t have the work experience, I suggest you apply to the generalist role.

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
