    I have been working at McKinsey & Company

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on exciting, high impact projects with teams of intelligent and interesting people while having a relatively high compensation.

    Cons

    Occasional long hours, lots of traveling, intensive work environment, high intellectual demand, frequent 360 reviews (although this can be good or bad)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to create assessment criteria for values during hiring and evaluation of current employees to avoid incidents like Galleon in the future.
