Prestige: put just McK on the resume without qualification. Ease to switch: probably very very difficult, like trying to transfer to ibanking but starting off in banking support. Compensation: lower than you were hoping for.

I interviewed with that practice. The interview process was similar to the generalist track. Prestige: Second class citizen at McK. Switching: Very difficult. Not going to get as much client exposure as a generalist would. Compensation: Base salary the same, but bonus is lower. Disclaimer: Based on my interactions with people at McK and on Glassdoor reviews etc. Please take this with a grain of salt.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
