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

Recommends
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Exposed to a wide variety of business problems and very senior management, hones your basic business skills in a very compressed timeframe
    Very smart and caring people who go out of the way to make things work and are personally invested in your success and growth
    Unbeatable brand on your resume

    Cons

    Lifestyle can be hard, because of the constant stress and deadlines and moving from one important project to the next
