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

Pros

Excellent experience, great opportunity to advance your career, and opportunities to learn a variety of topics based on your interest

Cons

Very political, ambitious colleagues may down you to higher ups for gain (seen this with those of similar tenure and had lower tenure employees do the same when I was senior), company now tracks every thing you do via electronics and you may run into problems if your private political views are expressed on company email or phone are different than those in your office (e.g. You are a Christian conservative in Cali), keep you personal life absolutely private

    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.
