I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Commitment to developing talent through 360 reviews, some of the smartest people in the world, strong culture of values and non-hierarchical.

Cons

Uptight corporate atmosphere, very few perks or company swag.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Used to compete with other consultancies and Wall St for young talent, but now must adapt to compete with fun, young companies like Google and Facebook.

    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.
