Great company

I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

Pros

McKinsey is still the best consulting firm out there - no questions asked. If you get an offer, jump at it.

Cons

Work life balance while an area of concern and work by the company can still be bad. Politics like any other company are at play.

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

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with very clever people and to see lots of different organizations

    Cons

    Led by folks who don't really understand what it means to excite, inspire and motivate people
    The premium here is on how smart you are and how well you come off to your senior colleagues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You ask for people to be entrepreneurial and yet the systems and structures in place discourage that and reward safe-bets, pleasing senior colleagues
