Yes but they’ll most likely bring you on at the Associate level if you jump over.

It isn't just about level matching; it is about knowing how to do things their way.

Very hard to join as EM. Most likely you will come as Associate maybe sr associate depending on geography/your experience

like

There’s just a lot of peculiarities and the best scenario I can imagine is McK forcing you to work as consultant for 6 months then automatic promotion to manager. But still extremely hard to believe they wouldn’t just put you as associate or sr associate

Joining as an EM would be difficult, better to target Sr. Associate instead. EM doesn't get paid that much more than Associate anyway, especially BA -> EM.
