Digital McKinsey- Associate - North America - New Jersey, Philadelphia, DC
Who you’ll work with

You’ll be working as an Associate with our Digital McKinsey group in our Mid Atlantic region. 

Digital McKinsey is a community for technology-savy colleagues who are passionate about 
leveraging technology to enable growth and innovation. It is comprised of 2,100 consultants 
and experts across 60 offices globally, who help clients think strategically about how to 
use technology to create fundamental business change – from formulating technology-driven 
growth strategies to enabling more efficient operations through the use of technology.

As a part of Digital McKinsey, you will work with clients in a wide range of sectors and 
industries. Some Digital McKinsey consultants work exclusively within Digital McKinsey 
while others mix their business-technology focus with broader consulting work 
(e.g., operations, organization, strategy, corporate finance, marketing and sales, etc.).

What you’ll do

Playing an active role in all aspects of a client project, you will typically work 
in teams of 3 – 5 consultants.

Our Digital McKinsey consultants share a passion for helping clients use technology 
strategically to change industries, transform business models, and create competitive 
advantage.  This work includes gathering and analyzing information, formulating and 
testing hypotheses, and developing and communicating recommendations. You’ll also 
have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations
in collaboration with client team members.

Associates receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring 
from colleagues on their teams. This support includes a Partner from your local office
or practice assigned to you to help guide your career as well as up to five weeks of 
formal training in your first two years as an Associate. Additionally, you'll receive 
guidance and support from your local office or practice in the selection of client 
projects, helping you to develop your skills and build your network.

While all consultants develop specialized knowledge and a focused program as they progress 
with McKinsey, in your first few years you will have an opportunity to work on a broad range 
of topics across industries and functions. For consultants who join McKinsey as experienced 
professionals, this can mean building on previous knowledge or developing unique experience
in an area that is completely new.
