Alternative to McK in Italy

 
#1 Alternative to McK in Italy

Hi! Yesterday I had my second round interview with McK (2 interviews, 1-hour-long each), but since I did not manage to finish one of the 3 cases they gave me I do not think I will make it through to the third and final stage. I cannot afford to lose any more time, I need to apply immediately for at least another 5 big consulting firms operating in Italy. Any advice apart from BCG and Bain? Thanks a lot.

Sorry to anon (#1)

I'm sorry you don't think it went too well. I think you might be the same 'Dennis' who was trying really hard? But you don't know until they come back to you.

I can't offer you any advice, having knowledge about the UK only, but wonder whether you might help me out:

What form did the quant questions take in teh Mc K interview? i have one next week, and don't really know what to expect. The Vault guide doesn't really cover that part, and that's the bit I am most anxious about!

Thanks in advance

Disillusioned to Sorry (#2)

Well, where can i start from? The first case started like the typical "entering-a-new-market case", but the interviewer after a short time into the interview wanted me to focus into the sales effort and asked me for the number of account managers the firm should have employed to reach a 250 million Euros net income per year, considering there are 10000 potential clients...then a lot of assumptions (the number of contacts per day reachable by car, the number of visits necessary to get the contact to sign the contract if you needed at least 5 succesful meetings and you had to share your chances with competitors and bla bla bla).

The second case interview was an "attack-from-a-competitor case", involved low profits and quantitative calculations starting from the bare NI=PV-C equation, and then from there a lot of calculus as the infos were poured in by the interviewer on my request.

Ok,

I'm really feeling worried now.

But, like I say, it's not over 'til the fat lady sings. If you can share your feedback with us, then please do. Everything helps....

Good luck with the jobsearch, I was cheering you on!
