As an McKinsey alum this is a horrific decision by greedy senior Partners. If Bob becomes Managing Partner, a great firm will become Accenture 2.0. A firm that been exposed for its greed in the last year is about to elect its most commercially focused person as MP.

Final thought: It’s a bold move to axe the guy who is the face of efforts to put in place better ethical controls. That takes... well, I’m not sure what it is, but it feels like they’re basically saying “Hire us, we’ll do WHATEVER you need!”

Wow. Kevin is truly very good.

Do you have any stories?

This headline is a bit clickbait-y in my opinion. Based upon other articles, this was a routinely scheduled election and he was not elected to a second term, even though all previous folks were, so it was very unusual, but he was not impeached / kicked out / ousted. He lost an election, but is still with McKinsey and in good standing.

That’s a strong gesture across the entire partners team. I wonder if he was a scapegoat of this?

Ok, seems like McKinsey is tumbling. Does that mean us non-elites now have a better chance to get on board because no one else is interested?

Having worked closely with Firm recruiting, I’ll tell you our offer acceptance rate has not changed and from a commercial perspective the Firm has never been better; however I acknowledge it’s not a great look to be in the news 24/7 for a Firm that prides itself on the McKinsey mystique

Woah

I was expecting this given the pretty significant negative press they have gotten lately. Someone has to be the scapegoat to show change, and the CEO makes sense.

How much money do you think he was making a year

From Oxy alone? Billions.

Was there overlapping with his leadership and the things that happened before? I mean I understand its the CEO and he needs to take the fall, but if he just took the helm 1 year ago seems misplaced blame. Get the punk that was before and the other partners that did the work.

He just finished a 3 year term, a large portion of which was spent cleaning up messes from the last MP

Can somebody pls explain this to me: if somebody has a medical emergency and needs to use short term disability, the firm says they need to pay for all of their other benefits at the full rate, not the employee discounted rate, so like $400 for health insurance instead of $100. Do they ever reimburse this money or is this the terrible setup they have if you need to use your disability benefits? I feel like I'm missing something.
