Similar cultures and WLB. I think we have higher pay, but McKinsey has faster progression so ultimately ends up being higher by a fair amount. Push comes to shove, the only reasons to take S& are: 1. You absolutely love your interviewers and know it’s home 2. McKinsey downlevels you 3. You want to focus on a specific industry right off the bat (debatable)

I didn’t realize our healthcare team was top notch, saw some models and worked with some team members, they seemed mediocre at best ..

We are as good as the data points around us, I guess. My statement was based on my observation of my peers who joined that group out of mba, and how early they got promoted as well as exit options they received. YMMV

As an outsider, McKinsey will have better name recognition for exit ops.
