McKinsey: Operations salaries same as strategy salaries?

Anonymous A

Anyone know if associates in the operations practice have similar salaries and benefits as those in other "prestigious" practices within McKinsey?

Tons of general data on Glassdoor but not for this specific question

Hi Anonymous,

McKinsey has a very rigorous salary structure. As an incoming Associate you will be compensated the same as any other associate. The only exception would be if you were hired as an Expert.

Hi,

I would check with an HR. Mckinsey is diversifying nowadays with the new practices that unfortunately have a lower salary.

E.g. I know some people with ops background working at Mck Implementation practice and the package there is different.

Best.

Investments or single business cases need to be evaluated based on a certain set of criteria. Since financial performance is the key criterion in most cases you need to have an idea about future financial impacts. A key tool to asses this impact is the cost-benefit analysis which is used to determine the net effect of potential revenues and costs.
