I have an opportunity to interview for an expert position in operation practices at McKinsey, which is equivalent to associate or EM. Can't find too much information about it. I would love to hear your experience and opinion on following aspects.
I was told it's still going to be the case interview, but should I expect higher likelihood of the cases from that practice? Should I expect some non-case discussions on the practice-related topics, especially in 2nd round?
2. Task and Career
Are experts staffed also as globally as generalists?
Do you have a chance to be involved in a part of the project that is not operation-related? Are there many experts switching to generalist track and vice versa?
What are the advantages and disadvantages in general for experts, comparing to generalist? I suppose the exit option for experts will be much more limited?
Really appreciate your input.
