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

    Pros

    Great brand to have on your CV Opportunity to learn about a lot of sectors in a relatively short period of time Get to work with some interesting people, and learn how to best do a project in a short period of time

    Cons

    Long, long hours (meaning way longer than necessary) Quite a few arrogant know-it-alls

    Advice to Management

    Please put some more effort into looking after people's work-life balance and ensure appropriate bottom-up feedbacks are taken into account, and actioned!
