A McKinsey Whisteblower Spills the Beans / Garrison Lovely

If you're working at McKinsey and you are consulting for an organization, there's no expectation that you actually agree with what they're doing. There's just this moral abdication of responsibility. You're just a mercenary. You're there to help the client do whatever they do. Somehow, if you're participating in implementing some decision, that's the result of a policy choice or the process of politics that you're not participating in policy or politics. I think this is just a fiction.

Chuck interviews Garrison Lovely on his article at The Nation Magazine, "Confessions of a McKinsey Whistleblower: Inside the soul-crushing, morally bankrupt, top-secret world of our most powerful consulting firm."
