@McKinsey folks, are there any nuances of McKinsey Implementation? Differences in pay or track to partner?

No. Different type of work yes, but you can move around and take on whatever studies you want really.

It is meant to attract experience hires who have a history of delivering impact. So, proven operators who can credibly advice/counsel clients through implementation (transformations, product launches, and so on).

So primarily it is an avenue to attract a different talent pool than our traditional talent pool. Implementation consultants at Mck are still Mck consultants and expected to have the same skill sets, impact, etc. as a generalist. This, the recruitment bar is the same, pay is the same, path to partner is the same and there is the same opportunity to do all sorts of studies.

The stigma you speak of does not exist within the firm, most times no one knows or cares about if someone is generalist or implementation. If a perceived lack of status stops a candidate from jointing Mck Implementation than most likely they were not a good cultural fit at Mckinsey any way

No difference and you make your own path. I’ve spent about 50% of my time on “implementation” type work (launching products, agile marketing squads, sales transformations) and 50% on more “traditional” work (strategy, DDs, etc.)

Question for the McK folks: what is the strategy behind making a distinct implementation title? From your experience does this attract a certain candidate? Feels like it would turn more people off than on because of the stigma (I like implementation work FWIW).
