As a Research Analyst, you will be responsible for collecting, analyzing and synthesizing information on key issues. You will develop client-ready industry overviews, case materials, financial analyses and other knowledge products in support of consultant teams. You will be responsible for working with consultants to scope and prioritize their research needs, identifying the key issues through discussions with requestors and, on that basis, to determine the most appropriate, cost-effective and timely research solutions. Gathering the necessary raw information from a broad spectrum of sources, you will analyze and synthesize your findings into targeted, McKinsey-formatted end products. These end products may be in the form of single exhibits, written summaries, basic fact packs, and spreadsheets.
You are encouraged to build a solid knowledge base, developing an appropriately broad understanding of the relevant structure, players, and trends in your topic area(s). To help build your expertise you will be leveraging internal and external networks, including leading industry sources and proprietary tools and models.
