Worked up to 6 days a week and up to 10 hours a day. I had to learn a lot on the job but picked up the skills pretty quickly. Meeting clients was difficult as a lot of the time they did not want to see you.
A great supportive place to work, you are cluster with 5 other EA's who are always willing to help and support.
Weekly 1-1 with line Manager.
Fantastic and welcoming on boarding
Great food, great office
Little room to progress
If you're an EA looking to find a comfortable set of workplace benefits, working amongst a team/pool of other EAs then you will enjoy it here.
In my experience the lack of support and 24/365/360 feedback model is not a culture than I enjoyed and I would avoid in the future as it inspires ethical and social problems.
McKinsey is a truly inspiring Global Management Consultancy Firm.
No two days were ever the same and the adrenaline rush from exceeding expectations was phenomenal.
I worked with amazing Directors and Partners and a fantastic EA cohort world wide.
The hardest part of the job was trying to achieve a work/life balance as the hours were extremely long and arduous.
The most enjoyable part of the job was doing the yearly catalogues and displaying jewellery for yearly jewellery show at Birmingham.
Management was good and easy to interact with.
Hardest part of the job was all the orders to deal with after trade shows.
