I got an offer from McKinsey, and I am about to start as a BA in Luanda, Angola, in approximately 1 month.
I am almost ready, bag almost closed and mindset on point! However, I have a few questions on how better I can create a great 1st impression and how the culture it is like in African offices, and Angola in particular. Thank you so much in advance for addressing them! Cheers
1. Creating a great first impression - I am aware a lot has been said about excel/ppt; taking this down time to relax, etc, but are there any MUST books/skills I should read/practice before day 1 at McK in general, and McK Angola in particular?
2. African MBB culture - I would like to know more about the working culture:
a) Is there a lot of client travelling?
b) Are daily working hours similar to Southern Europe offices?
c) other intricacies
Thank you all again!
