Joining McKinsey & Company as a post-MBA implementation associate. Just curious how many years to EM? How often do people get counseled out? And how difficult is it to get staffed on projects in the Consumer Retail and Automo space? Thank you.

~2, <10%, not difficult but it all comes down to timing. If you’re up for staffing and there aren’t any projects in that space, you won’t be staffed on one.

Staffing is usually pretty flexible in NA. Just make sure you reach out to Partners/EMs in the industry that interest you to be on their radar for staffing
