Currently working in a M&A house (not ibank) as Associate and got an offer for McK CF Associate. Since I'm looking to move to/2nd tier Associate and wondering which path will give me a higher chance. (p.s. I don't have an MBA but 2-3 years of M&A experience).
Does anyone know whether there's successful cases which ppl from McK CF moved to BB/2nd tier IBD? (I only found there's many ex-IBD analysts moved to McK CF but not sure the other way round)
Also do they actually execute transactions (handling the negotiation and regulation stuffs) or only perform the management / strategy consulting things related to CF? and how's the working hours like in the team?
Heard the up/out policy is quite tough, any idea of how risky of being laid off? (I assume everyone in McK are smart which means the competition is very keen right?)
Thanks a lot in advance for the advices as I need to make up my mind soon. Thanks!
