Hi,

The average tenure at McKinsey is 2 years. Knowing that the com[any will do everything to keep you:

  • Significant salary uplift while moving from BA to Associate
  • MBA to take a break
  • Fast promotion from Associate to Manager
  • Fast promotion from Manager to AP

The best time to leave depends on the following factors:

  • Overall market conditions (In the bad market you should better stay at McK)
  • Client exit opportunities - exiting to the client with an established relationship, knowing all the internal set up is a very good exit
  • Your career path at McKinsey - i.e. you know that you might have issues with the next promotion
  • Your health / stress level, i.e. how much you are tired from that job

On average 2.5 years.

Most of the people decide to move to another job after a couple of years or wait until the third year in order to do an MBA.

Hi,

On average, it is around 2-2.5 years, because of two main reasons:

  • Due to the up or out culture, some consultants are not promoted thus they are pushed out
  • Due to the highly demanding culture of the profession, some consultants leave for jobs that offer a better work-life balance

Best,

Deniz

Hello,

Slightly depends on which position you are:

-BAs: either they leave at 24 months, when you depart to do your MBA, or they get their MBA finance and hence are forced to stay 2 years more.

-Associates -mostly post MBA-: 2-3 years, depending on how the market looks, when they are/will be EMs, if one of their big clients opens a good position, etc.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

I have noticed the following pattern

1. Business Analysts - ~1.5 to 2 yrs as they have many many options to choose from once they finish their time at McKinsey

2. Associates - typically leave a few months after making Engagement Manager. This can range from 2 to 3 years

Hello there,

It really depends on the regions.
On average 1.5 - 2.5 years.

Typically at fresh graduate entry level (non-MBA) the number revolves between 1.5 - 2 years (with a lot of consultants going for MBA after 2 years mark) while post-MBA timeline is a bit longer, between 1.5 - 3 years (people try to aim for EM promotion before leaving).

Kind regards,
Nathan
