Out of curiosity, What are the biggest scandals of esch firm?

McKinsey had that south african corruption thing and more recently the "overdose reccomendation"; and Monitor helped Gadhafi in Lybia; but what else do we know?

I'd assume Oliver and Bain should be the "most ethical ones" (or less unethical perhaps), but I honestly have no clue

Wow, so much evil that i want to work for them. Its not everyday you get a chance to ruin the world at the scale and impact that McK offers.

Is this app just a bunch of 25 year olds? Bain was involved in a massive scandal with Guinness that helped precipitate a near-bankruptcy of the firm. The whole episode created a “second founding” of the firm (this was when Mitt came back as managing partner) and a lot of the core values came from those years. But it was certainly big news.

HOA - doing something without approval.....was planning to change my windows without hoa approval but my neighbour snitched. I came clean to the hoa and now I need to go through a 2 mo approval process and they might not even approve my windows. I paid 7k for them. I am now feeling regret for not just ignoring the hoa email and then still installing and dealing with the fine on the back end ? Thoughts? I’m also worried now that I’m on some radar. Am I overthinking this?
