For ~ 10 weeks over the summer, you’ll work with GC Analytics (GCI), by McKinsey, in Atlanta.
GCI is a small, entrepreneurial and growing office which provides deep analytics, research, benchmarking and consulting services to clients in corporate banking and the payments industry (https://www.mckinsey.com/solutions/gci-analytics). Clients secure our expertise and data-driven insights to evaluate business line performance and to make operational improvements and product development decisions. With the look and feel of a start-up, we are a wholly owned subsidiary of McKinsey and Company, and operate both within McKinsey teams and also independently under our own brand and management team.
You will use your commercial banking and payments industry experience to help build and run our knowledge assets (i.e., products), particularly one of our multi-client benchmarking studies.
You will operate with a high degree of autonomy and responsibility and work closely with internal McKinsey colleagues as well as external clients. You will be given high levels of responsibility from the start, including interfacing directly with clients to support their use of the data in our benchmarks, working closely with GCI data engineers and the data engineering team to generate insights, performing detailed quality assurance of regular data deliverables, and preparing and presenting benchmark results and strategic recommendations to client executive sponsors. You will also be responsible for ensuring successful onboarding of new clients (including collecting, cleaning and analyzing data).
As your tenure on the team grows, you will build new data assets, consulting engagement models or other capabilities from the benchmark on which you serve. You will also leverage industry and functional expertise to work, from time-to-time, on consulting projects, either as a remote “expert on call” or, less frequently, as a fully embedded team member.
