McKinsey 🐠- does the firm hire managers from Big 4 firms as EMs instead of Associates? What’s the best time in the recruiting process to push for this?

Depends on your tenure at the EM level. Typically, if you are an EM1-2 in a Big4, you will be asked to come in as a 1+ Asc. If you are more experienced, you maybe able to push for a consideration for the EM level. Source: Formerly Big4 EM.

Agree except last point - got much more partner time on the ground time at McKinsey than Deloitte due to pyramid shape (6:1 vs 15:1 consultant to partner ratio) Also find it easier to be EM here as the knowledge to a great extent is “outsourced” to experts or institutionalised knowledge, while EM manages process. At Monitor Deloitte where I used to be, the EM was the source of most subject matter knowledge.

Guys I know this question has been asked before, but just want to hear some thoughts on this. Is it worth it to go from one big 4 company (EY) to another (Deloitte) for consulting? The major factor is pay increase. The major down side is loss of people network. Thoughts?
