McKinsey asked me to interview for a data science specialist role at McKinsey New Ventures group in healthcare practice. What is New Ventures group and how does it compare to rest of McKinsey in terms of growth, exit opportunities and career trajectory? I was told that this is an expert career path. Does that mean same, better or worse than traditional McKinsey MBA consultants?
FYI: This seems to be a significant stepdown in terms of title. I was recently promoted to director at 30k+ people public company (which also means that the next promotion is ~2-3 years away at least). Don't know if taking this role of a specialist at McKinsey implies taking a step backward in career.
