I’ve been interviewing with McKinsey for the role of Knowledge Analyst(in India) & so far I’ve had 1 PSG(Imbellus), 2 Rounds of Knowledge Interviews, 3 Rounds of PEI, 1 Discussion w/ an EM(not involving any case) & today I had a discussion with PD Manager to discuss overalls & financials. I’m guessing this was the last round. Wanted to check with McKinsey & Company folks that does this indicate that I’ve almost got in or am I getting my hopes high too soon. Any input/ anecdotes????

Just adding to above points:
1. After PEI the recruitment coordinator did say that the overall feedback was +ve
2. QQ: what is the compensation for this role, I.e. Knowledge Analyst @McKinsey Gurgaon??

Too anxious to wait for final verdict. 😅😅😅😅


Thanks M1. How much is variable? Also are there other components to compensation as well

By my Experience, don't get excited too soon. I had the same hopes from Mckinsey. Everything was positive until the last day, but after a week they put me on the waitlist and sent me an offer 3 months later which was too late. I assumed at that point they had opening for a single guy and hired someone else and if his joining failed or something, they'd invite me or invite me for a new opening later.

Also compensation of KA's totally depend upon experience, they start at 13LPA and go further up depending upon experience and your college prestige.


K1, thanks for the insight. I guess you are right, they might be interviewing multiple candidates for one role.
Hoping for the best & preparing for the worst😅😅😅. Already stocked up on Legend🍹.

Also how long after the final interview does McKinsey provides the final verdict to the candidate?

How to apply for McKinsey?

Hi my sharks 🦈🙂👋🏻
I received a Welcome Kit from KPMG India as my joining date is just a month away.

However, I won't be joining KPMG as I have far better offers. Hence this welcome kit has put me in a very awkward and uncomfortable position.

So when I would be declining the joining via a mail /phone call, should I tell the HR that I want to return this welcome kit as I won't be joining?

Will they take it back? I feel it is morally and ethically wrong to keep this kit knowing I won't join.
