I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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!

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting client work, ability for associates to work across many industries and also work directly with senior client members. Exceptionally smart and fun colleagues. Comfortable office surroundings.

    Cons

    Long hours. Travel is norm. Hong Kong management (and Greater China in general) do not seem to hold same values as North American counterparts -- more emphasis on business vs profession, more political environment, more hierarchical culture
