Are consultants simply someone who “borrows your watch to tell you the time?”
“Veteran journalist Duff McDonald makes a point in his book “The Firm” that McKinsey might be the single greatest legitimizer of mass layoffs in history —although that would be pretty much impossible to measure. Companies do need to lay off workers in tough times, that’s a simple fact. But the whole idea of corporate powerhouses laying off thousands of people during good times simply to juice profits—and, naturally, executive compensation—is something that McKinsey has definitely had a hand in as well. ...That sounds like a vote for evil, to me.”
