Hello Anonymous,
Thanks for reaching out.
In Paris offices, BCG and McKinsey are generalist office that have several industries and functional practices.
The main ones :
- In terms of industries: industrial Goods, Consumer Goods, Financial services, and to a certain extent Telco & Media and Healthcare
- In terms of functional expertise: Organization, Operations, Technlogy & Digital (highly growing in both firms), Marketing & pricing
I hope that helps - do not hesitate to DM me if you have any questions.

Hello!

Traditionally, industry-focused, pharma and banking.

However, the portfolio of clients and engagements of an office is very dynamic and changes real fast.

Have a look at the publications of the office and their partners, this gives a lot of hints of what they are working on.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

McKinsey / ex-Interviewer at McKinsey / I will coach you to rock those interviews

Hi,

3 things I know about in terms of industries are 1) manufacturing 2) banking 3) pharmaceuticals – but probably there are more, i'm just not aware.

In terms of functions it's really everying, like in any other country: from digital and strategy to procurement and OPEX optimization.

Best,
Daniel

Hi

It's true that BCG sells a lot of Financial Institutions cases in France but most of the cases are non FI. BCG is generalistic and work on all industries in France.
