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

Pros

Great exposure, very interesting work, super smart/talented people to work with. It's a great place to be as a young person because you get to learn a lot about how businesses work generally. McKinsey invests a lot in its people, and you will get the opportunity to grow as quickly as you as you are willing to put in the effort.

Cons

Travel a lot, work long hours sometimes with little visibility, not sustainable from a long-term perspective for many people, some partners or managers are not great to work with. Your experience will be very team-specific, so if you're working with a great manager/partners, then your experience will be fantastic. Some partners/managers are notorious for having bad lifestyle or other management issues that will make the project very painful.

    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 can choose industry, function and, sometimes, geography to work Projects are all different and often interesting You interact with top management of top companies - there is what to learn from them Smart colleagues Steep learnig curve Many exit options

    Cons

    Long hours (not much better than in IB: you work even more on weekdays but typically have free weekends) Extensive travel You are paid not enough for this lifestyle: travel and hours
