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

    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.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
