    I have been working at McKinsey & Company

    Pros

    Very smart people, take on challenging projects, great training and knowledge building, provides experience of working in multiple industries and functions.

    Cons

    Challenging travel schedule, difficult to maintain work / life balance, up or out policy forces great project managers to leave the company or move to more of sales role

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest into leadership development initiatives, too many project managers have no people management experience and don't know how to deal with people.
