WHO YOU’LL WORK WITH

You’ll work with our GCI Analytics team in Atlanta.

GCI is a small, entrepreneurial, and growing office which provides analytics, research, benchmarking, and consulting services to clients in corporate banking and the payments industry.

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.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

You will work with our payments market insights team to help with payments market research and client service.

This includes modeling various aspects of the payments industry (both creating new models and updating existing models), fulfilling requests for internal McKinsey teams and direct client subscribers and helping in a support role on consulting engagements.

In this role you will create, update, and maintain payments industry flows and revenue models (e.g. digital wallet, merchant services, prepaid card, consumer segmentation). You will create analyses and pages related to these models for internal clients and external direct subscribers. You will also serve as an “expert-on-call” to field consultants’ inquiries, providing data and research insights to increase the value to our clients. You will operate with a high degree of autonomy and responsibility and work closely with internal GCI colleagues as well as external clients.

After helping on the product full-time for 12-24 months, as a solution delivery analyst, you will choose a longer-term career path as either a consultant or a product manager at GCI. Consultants will reduce time spent on the asset as they build experience and ultimately transition 70% or more into analyst or associate roles on (McKinsey or GCI) consulting engagements. Product managers will grow out of their product analyst roles to take over one or more of the market insights products full-time, with responsibility for the product roadmap, overseeing analysts on the project, and client delivery.
