Who You'll Work With

You’ll work with our Analytics group in São Paulo, Brazil.

As a member of McKinsey Analytics, you will be responsible for blending strategic thinking with the latest tools and technologies, advising on developing and defining strategies and solutions to help our clients around Latin America to solve their most critical problems. By applying advanced analytics to address challenges across different areas, we help our clients gain significant, sustained improvements in performance. We work with clients to identify where to focus, convert data and models into actionable insights, and develop institutional skills and structures to sustain impact. We use advanced analytics not only to improve the design of physical systems but also to address management infrastructures and employees’ attitudes and behaviors so that clients are able to lead change independently.

You'll focus on three broad areas of responsibility, including analytics, client service support and development, and knowledge transfer and practice development.

You'll create valuable, transformative business strategies through the measurement, manipulation, reporting and dissemination of broad sets of data. You'll also apply and advise on state-of-the-art advanced analytic and quantitative tools and modeling techniques in order to derive business insights, solve complex business problems and improve decisions. You'll review, support and advise on the day-to-day analytics requirements of clients’ key operational processes while continually improving the impact of these processes, and you'll continually explore innovative analytical techniques, processes, tools, etc. to better serve clients and to be a thought leader in the industry.

As a core member of the consulting team, you'll conduct deep analytics on a broad set of client and external data and you'll have a lead role in team problem solving through findings and insights from analysis. You'll create value for clients by understanding their needs and translating them into optimal desired analytical services and you'll be a leader in overseeing analytics process and data integration between clients and McKinsey.

Furthermore, you'll lead and support the development of knowledge for our firm's analytic group. You'll create a roadmap for a greater understanding of analytics and its impact in the consulting population and you'll partner with Data Engineers to ensure timely and effective methods of the extraction, assembly and transfer of broad, complex sets of data.

    Muito difícil de trabalhar na McKinsey

    AssistenteEx-funcionário, saiu em 2012

    São Paulo, SP

    Prós: Tecnologia de ponta. Tudo funciona e é muito rápido. Funcionários de altíssimo nível, o que nos da oportunidades de troca de conhecimento diariamente. Por ser exigente por princípio, trabalhar na McKinsey eleva nossa exigência com a qualidade e eficiência de todos os processos.

    Contras: A empresa é dividida em dois grupos bem distintos: Consultores e Suporte (TI, Financeiro, Assistentes, Controladoria...). Para o grupo dos consultores a melhor empresa do mundo para se trabalhar. Para o segundo grupo é, de longe, um lugar extremamente difícil devido a agressividade, não valorização do trabalho, exclusão, entre muitas outras coisas impensáveis para uma empresa do porte da McKinsey.

    Conselhos para presidência: Que troquem a direção da empresa no Brasil se quiserem atrair talentos administrativos (Fundamentais para o andamento de qualquer escritório) e, também, se quiserem mudar a imagem no mercado de empresa ruim para se trabalhar, com ambiente pesado e desmotivador.

    Recomenda a empresa: Não
