Pros

Powerful toolkit, tremendous depth & breadth of experience. Perspective on multiple industries, multiple functions. Unlimited opportunity for growth. Deep global resources and knowledge.

Cons

Occasional hierarchical people. Great training but insufficiently integrated. Chaotic sequence of training. Some issues with culture clashes among multinational employees. Good attempts made to head these off, but some are of course inevitable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to work on eliminating hierarchy. Develop clearer sequence of initial training to make it integrated and show path of learning in clear terms for new incoming consultants.

    Pros

    Very smart and enthusiastic colleagues - a lot of them are my good friends
    Superb placement after McKinsey - Senior Associate / Engagement Manager typically pretends on CEO-3 positions in top companies
    Exposure to many industries, companies and people
    Fast track career

    Cons

    Geography can be limited in some offices with lack of people - I had very difficult time trying to find international project
    Organization has politics inside
    You need to adjust to consulting lifestyle and learn how to outsource everything possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure more career and job flexibility - opportunity to take additional non-paid leave, easier switch between offices

    Pros

    Fast pace learning. Opportunity to work at difficult business problems. Career progressions. Fantastically stimulating people to work with.

    Cons

    Perspective can be too self-centered. Easy to become self-infatuated with oneself. Risk of narrowing life- and job-perspective. Risk of burning out before you are 40.
