Who You'll Work With

At McKinsey, you can build a career out of making things happen! You'll be working with McKinsey's Manufacturing practice service line in North America.

You will make a meaningful, hands-on contribution to the analysis, design, and implementation of business performance approaches, developing tailor-made solutions and working closely with clients to ensure positive impact and sustainable results.
