Mckinsey only hires 20 and 30 year olds?

Dec 13, 2019 13 Comments

there seens to be a majority of 20s and 30s Mckinsey new hires. Is there an unspoken (or maybe spoken) rule of not hiring those over 40?

    No one over 40 can pull 80hr weeks. Let's be real here.

  • If you want to increase your chances for McKinsey if you’re over 40, become white

  • Yes cause when you are 40something you are usually smarter than the younger and you know that trading life for money is not worth it

    You are too wise and knowledgeable past 40 to be of any use to consulting BS.

      Not really, for the business McKinsey in. Why would people pay money for consultants without real experience

    You have to be a partner or equivalent to be hire over 40 unless you are expert

  • Pretty much yes. Bulk of hiring comes as business analyst fresh from UG and associate consultant fresh from MBA. Really tough to get in otherwise. Hell, it’s tough even with on campus recruiting — nearly nonexistent outside of that unless you’re “back office” like accounting, IT, etc that isn’t the main business

    We’re the only ones dumb enough to think that consulting is the way to go. And once the youth has been robbed(2-3 years for the very best) we find something stable

    You would have to be hired in as partner if you are in your 40s. Not likely.
