Good

I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Superb organisation with high integrity, great opportunities and excellent training. It's #1 for a reason

Cons

Long work hours, perfection to the point of absurdity, decreasing incremental value toward the end of studies, solutions can err on the theoretical and feel incomplete

    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

    Pros

    You will never be bored, the projects vary across a number of industries, and the people you will be able to work with are always top in their field

    Cons

    extremely competitive, these are some of the most driven people in the world, they are not used to being told that something can't be done or can't happen.
