    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highest professional standards, people are highly valued regardless of their role, the work is fast-paced with enough challenge to sink your brain into

    Cons

    when the work becomes too fast-paced to get everyone on the team on the same page, it is unfortunately possible to work at cross-purposes

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company part-time

    Pros

    They are a large company and therefore very selective on who they choose to hire.

    Cons

    If you don't go to their set schools, the likelihood of you getting in is very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a person doesn't go to the ivy league doesn't mean they aren't exponentially smarter than your list schools.
