    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues, very intense academic environment, non-confrontational exchange of ideas, diversity in terms of backgrounds and experiences. Lots of travel (if you want to do it).

    Cons

    Long hours, lots of travel, risk of not seeing your recommendations fully implemented. There are situations in which you can't pick your work (although it is manageable).

    I worked at McKinsey & Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    $50 for dinner and $35 for lunch means great food all the time! Lots of miles and starwood points due to travel and hotel stays Incredibly smart colleagues to learn from from top MBA and PHD programs Very caring environment Instead of flying back home for the weekend, you can leverage the fly out to go anywhere you want! Exposure to top management in industry Ability to be exposed to multiple industries through going on different studies

    Cons

    Long hours (8am to 1am) occasionally There is a lot of travel which might be a bummer if you dislike traveling There is always high pressure to perform

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job!
