Incredible people, high impact projects, amazing development , early onset of grey hair

Consultant (Current Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 3 years

ProsUnique and astounding opportunities for professional development
Work on incredible high-impact and interesting problems
Varied work for broad and deep exposure across industries and functions
Many many other smart, lovely people to get to know (it's just a pity you're all so busy so can't spend more time with each other)
They take care of you

ConsLots of travel for those with families (in most cases), intense work, generally long hours (though you can fight to make these more reasonable)

Advice to Senior ManagementThe best people will stay longer (I mean the best, not just the good) if you can make the hours and demands more realistic

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
