Who you’ll work with

You'll work in Jersey City as part of our Periscope Solution.  Periscope is part of McKinsey & Co. New Ventures Periscope Solutions.

Periscope leverages decades of McKinsey’s marketing and sales experience helping leading companies improve pricing, promotion, assortments, and performance management.  Periscope’s combination of software, tailored services, and expertise provides our clients with a granular view of their commercial and financial performance by gathering and integrating their landscape of data and information into a central data warehouse.  Clients can use our intuitive interface to make decisions based on advanced analytics and can embed new pricing, commercial, and performance management capabilities throughout their organization.

New Ventures is a recently formed part of McKinsey focused on fostering innovations driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile, social and other technologies and integrating them into our client work. It is a foundation for—and expands our investment in—our entrepreneurial culture.

McKinsey Solutions is a core part of New Ventures and offers practical tools that help people at all levels of an organization generate insights they need to address both strategic and day-to-day decisions. These solutions complement McKinsey's traditional client service and are delivered in many ways, including subscriptions, workshops, training programs and project-based engagements. We work closely with clients to embed our tools, analytics and expertise, and provide on-going support to help them build the capabilities they need to revolutionize how decisions are made.

 

What you’ll do

You will work closely with client executives and traditional McKinsey client service teams, supporting the growth and development of the Periscope Solution.

You'll be assigned to 
McKinsey consulting teams as a Business Analyst to support pricing workstreams. This is likely where you'll spend the majority of your time.  Additionally, you will act as a liaison between the client, McKinsey teams and Periscope during all points of an engagement.  You'll be an important point of contact for client stakeholders after the McKinsey team has left to help provide support for their use of Periscope.

Additionally, you'll be involved in driving outreach to key potential clients and identifying opportunities to support clients leveraging Periscope’s offerings.  
During the first 3 months, you'll receive training and experience in the basic skill areas of problem solving, interviewing, communications, client and team interaction and you'll be expected to obtain a basic working knowledge of functional skills such as pricing, promotions, organizational effectiveness and strategy, and the consulting process in general.
 
We encourage you to pursue one or more fields of primary interest. Specific areas could include strategic pricing, promotions effectiveness, planning, advanced analytics, and control.
