I have the opportunity to join McKinsey as a Specialist on the "Partner-Electable" Expert track. The role is exclusively client-facing, and the assignments / training opportunities appear very similar to the "standard" generalist consultant.
I do not have an MBA, but advanced degrees in other fields, and performed well throughout the series of case study interviews.
Can anyone provide insight on:
(1) how the specialist role looks in terms of prestige/reputation on the CV?
(2) exit options back into industry
(3) whether this is a seems like a good development opportunity
I found some information on McKinsey business lines in the following post: https://www.preplounge.com/en/consulting-forum/mckinsey-business-lines-469
Any comments are appreciated.
