No opinion of CEO

I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great experience, processes and approach to problem solving is exemplary. Very smart people, professional...not a-holes to each other.

Cons

Not clear to me yet that the work is necessarily any better than specialized consultancies. What's different is that it's managed well, delivered to senior management and hence potentially more impactful. Unstructured to a fault...chaotic way of getting things done...even people who have worked here for years have a hard time explaining which group does what. Work life balance is poor, but that is accepted as the way it is.
