Some McKinsey engagements of the recent past:
- Enron: That, as documented in Condé Nast's crown jewel The New Yorker, went well.
- Wal-Mart: McKinsey argued that laying off senior employees was good business. Circuit City was then inspired to lay off 3400 workers!
- White & Case: Mega law firm. 70 layoffs.
- Cablevision: 80 layoffs at MSG.
- First Boston: Hired McKinsey to advise on rebranding and layoffs.
- NYC Schools: Instituted a hiring freeze
