MEET OUR OPERATIONS COLLEAGUES
“One of the things I value most about working at McKinsey, not only those who are part of my immediate team during a project, but also the entire network of colleagues around the world. Coming from the industry, one of the first things that surprised me was how easy it was to contact someone on the other side of the world and the willingness of that individual in helping you solve whatever challenge you are facing. The collaboration and knowledge at McKinsey is what makes our work different and special every day, because at the end of the day, this is what you put on the table when you are looking to bring solutions to your clients, it is not only your experience but that of the entire firm.”
Aixa, Junior Specialist, Procurement & Product Development, Bogotá
“It was my dream to work on a large transformation for an Australian mine, preferably somewhere in the outback. Not long after I joined McKinsey, I spent 28 hours traveling to a mining site in remote Queensland, where kangaroos would visit my ‘donger’ (aka camp room) at night. The client and McKinsey team formed a deep connection and the work we did with the maintenance team felt very rewarding. I loved the entire experience so much that I returned to the outback for another few months later that year at an even more remote mining site in Western Australia.”
Mandy, Engagement Manager, Implementation, Amsterdam
“I applied to McKinsey after attending the Operations Women’s Leadership event in 2016. Not only was I inspired by the success stories and accomplishments of others at the event, I was empowered by our shared experiences and ability to overcome obstacles as women leaders in Operations. Since joining the firm, I have created a network of highly motivated, accomplished women leaders. I have leveraged my industry experience to help utilities develop grid modernization strategy, advise clients on public-private partnerships, and develop business cases for large scale infrastructure in North America.”
