Like to ask this as last question - essentially asking if they have any concerns with your background / skillset to be successful in the role. Lets them reiterate your strengths or let you rebuttal any concerns they may have.



We talk about this @wallstreetbook (join us on insta!) — here’s mine: What surprised you most when you joined Firm X? Really helps understand what the “true experience” is like. Good luck!


“With no prior training do you think you can land a hot air balloon?” Always made me stand out at the end of an interview and was a great way break the awkward interview vibe

TIL that 'Big 4' = PWC, Deloitte, EY, and KPMG. Is Big 4 considered 'elite'? I've always viewed them as a step over from ACN, whereas I've seen Bain/BCG/McKinsey as a step up. Too much ACN Kool-aid?

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.


How can you even form a family in this wlb? I'm only in my 25 and single. Work alone already takes 10+ hours daily, add in gym/cooking/sleep, I find I only have 1-2 hours left a day to actually chill. How do you even raise kids in this corporate culture?
