What are the evaluation metrics for phone case interview at McKinsey? I’ve been reading reviews about being failed despite sufficient preparation. I have sufficient time to prep (2 weeks) but am finding myself underprepared at this point.

AFAIK - Structuring + math + brainstorming + communication + creativity. Do atleast average in all and stand out in 1 or 2

Is it the MAC phone case? If so it’s an easier version of a real McKinsey case. The math is much easier. They want to make sure you know how to do a case and not waste their time

Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career.

Quit my job and it felt so good, my Manager was an extraordinarily nasty person! Wondering if I should give HR the real feedback at the exit interview or just pretend everything is okay and move on. Thoughts? Manager has no empathy, has a clique within the team and openly plays favourite within the team. Example with flexible holiday her favourites can take 30 days a year but others like me are not allowed above 15 days. Will it make a difference telling HR for the sake of others in the future?

Previous firm culture was all about the people, new firm is all about being the best... I knew the stereotype here was about being *the best*, but didn’t realize that people who buy into firm culture/values just repeatedly talk about how “we’re the best,” and, “we work REALLY hard bc we’re the best!!” I’m trying to commit, but end every internal call where I hear these words feeling like 🥴😶🙄. At least at the old firm there were relationships to back up the people piece and make it relatable.
