    I have been working at McKinsey & Company

    Pros

    It is challenging, but in the end I think it will be rewarding based on the name recognition of the company for purposes of MBA admissions.

    Cons

    It can be somewhat stressful based on the demands placed on time and the intellectual rigor through which analyst work is examined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the flow of information between junior and senior consultants. Additionally, management should consider increased reliability on analysts for client facing positions.
