McKinsey (Instabul) or CGE&Y(London)

 
#1 McKinsey (Instabul) or CGE&Y(London)

Bibi

I have graduated from a good UK university and have two offers for joining as an associate consultant either in McKinsey in INstabul or at CGE&Y in London. My goal is to get the best experience in order to go into a top US business school. I would very much appreciate your input.

Ex - CGEY

Hi Bibi,

I have worked five years with the strategy department of CGEY, when it still was Gemini Consulting. If you are interested in management consulting, I would not advise you to go to CGEY.

I have quit the company some months ago as I noticed that all good strategy consultants resigned. There is no more strategy capabilities in CGEY. Best regards.

thanks for your replies. I understand what you are saying but I am from Turkey and by going back I lose out on the international exposure GCEY in London offers and bs want. Does this change your suggestion???

bibi - dont come anywhere near CGEY. The company and everything about them is a disaster zone.

Not quite a disaster zone

I currently work at CGEY & would not quite call it a disaster zone. Although we are going through layoffs, many other firms are experiencing similar cost-cutting measures. On top of that, I recently did an MBA at Carnegie Mellon & worked for quite a number of years in London. In terms of getting into a top MBA program, you are correct, international experience is a plus. However, to a US-centric university (and most are), experience in Turkey is international experience even if it your home country. My recommendation (although it is only one opinion) is to go for McKinsey. While I know that they too have their problems, they have an excellent reputation - which counts with US MBA programs. Just make sure that your English skills are as strong as possible to get the most out of the MBA.
