Hi,

It's basically the same as the original McKinsey company, just a part of it.

  • Culture - McKinsey culture with all its pluses and minuses
  • Day-to-day - same as the generalist projects it may be 60-80 hours a week. Although since operational projects are a bit longer and located on plants, very often in the middle of nowhere, the lifestyle is a bit better
  • Companies - Fortune 500, manufacturing, retail&distribution, retail banking
  • Mainly cost cutting (process optimization, layoffs, etc.)
