Hello,

It can happen that internal processes take really long and it's not something strictly related with your performance. I would suggest to call the HR and try to push a little bit. If you need to know it within a short time, you can think of tellinh them that you have another offer to be answered.

Best,
Luca

Hello there,

One week is quite typical, especially for final offer stage.
Usually, it can extend between 2-4 weeks.

Note that there"s a lot of elements coming in on formulting an offer, such as which Partner will you be put under? What is the team composition given an new member? How can you best contribute in terms of knowledge creation,etc?

Keep calm, constantly try to contact the HR, and fingers crossed you"ll get your positive news soon.

Kind regards,
Nathan

Hello!

Agree with the fact that it is unsual. However, doesn´t have to mean that things didn´t go right, could be simply that partners have been busy.

Best thing is to call HR directly, or even pay them a visit if it´s in the same city.

Good luck!

Best,

Clara

Hi Anonymous,

The best way to proceed is giving your HR contact a call. I see again and again many candidates waiting for feedback via email - yes, finally also those get answered, but it's an asynchronous media and it might take a while until somebody can get back to it.

Also corona virus adds a bit to the hassles at the moment and might increase turnaround time - many clients already stopped coming consultants on-site personally, and all non-essential internal personal meetings with travel involved were cancelled in some European offices. As you can imagine, that brings quite some turbulance in otherwise smooth processes...

Hope that helps - if you, please give it a thumbs-up with the upvote button!

Hi,

Why don't you just e-mail / call the HR directly? Most probably the partners were too busy ti sync on your feedback

Hi Anonymous,

this is unusual for McKinsey, as it is normally quite quick with feedback. I would recommend to call HR directly to verify the reason of the delay.

Best,
