Outstanding people calibre - smart, dedicated, professional.
I really love the culture. John Lydon (the MD) keeps the firm focused on improving quality of live and social inclusion in Australia and New Zealand.
The approach is very professional, putting client interests above our own, an obligation to dissent (to get the right answer), and focus on delivering impact. Part of the professional culture is continuous learning, and there's extensive infrastructure to help us learn and grow.

Advice to Management
Keep maintaining the high standards on professionalism, values and culture.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Sydney) in March 2016.
Submitted application on line and received an invite after 2 months.
Problem Solving Test (1 hour) followed by 2 interviews - case and personal fit questions (50 minutes each)
PST seemed more difficult than the online versions. Feedback from interviewers did not involve the score or how you did for it.
Personal fit interviews were ok but seemed that they were looking for a particular answer or way that something should be done.
Problem solving is weighted heavily for these interviews, quick calculations and STRUCTURE! If you don't write/draw your structure, you're bound to get no offer.
