    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than an 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

    Interesting and diverse work, bad lifestyle, perfect for few years but not for longer

    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

    Recommends
