Mckinsey vs tech startup

Anonymous author | 5mon

I just got multiple offers for the post of software engineer at Mckinsey and Co.(17.5 lpa+ 1.75lpa bonus+ 2.4 joining) and cloud cover (25 lpa). I am 3 years experienced and want to learn as well as earn money. However I have been in established firms all along and Mckinsey hr and interviewers kept telling me that the projects are purely development and across various domains(Mckinsey by build) so I'll get to learn a lot. I'm really confused which I should choose. Will choosing Mckinsey propel my career in any way that the startup won't? Also can anyone please list the pros and cons for both. Thanks a lot!

If it's a good startup where you know there's a very high chance of growth, you'll learn more at that startup and get a higher role than at McKinsey Side note: My startup is hiring and we would love to have you

Go for the start up if you want to take up the technical route in your career and mckinsey if u wanna pursue the business management route. I understand you might not have the clarity right now, so if you think u r a techie and like coding/designing stuff, go for the startup else mckinsey.

Mckinsey has many verticals, the one you said works like a service based company. Projects are 4-6 months long, always latest tech stack. You're actually building everything from scratch, no micro management.

You got to discuss and take system design kind of decisions in choosing right set of things and executing it. No maintenance work at all.

It works like startup environment only. Flat hierarchy, no manager, employee friendly company, annual hike 12%-30%, $2000-3000 learning budget, amazing health, dental, eyewear benefits.

The amount of breadth and depth you'll cover here in 1 year is equal to 3-4 years in a product based or some old service based. The only con is initial salary is low. Other than that pretty good place to learn, work.
