No opinion of CEO

I worked at McKinsey & Company (More than 10 years)

Pros

+ Everyone you speak to is brilliant + You gain access to one of the best networks in the world + Lots of opportunity for growth, both personally and professionally + Benefits are amazing

Cons

- Work/life balance is horrible, this place is all about working not sleeping - People are so busy that they don't always have time for basic niceties with team mates - If you are not a partner-track consultant, you are not as valued and invisible to some - People only socialize with their client engagement team, no time to see anyone else

Advice to Management

Recognize that your support staff is just as impressive as the consultants. Sometimes, more so!

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

    Advice to Management

    None
