    Focus on development of employees, friendly culture, great benefits, project-based so allows for flexibility in travel and holiday. Given the reputation, you get the opportunity to work with smart and bright individuals at all levels and to serve exciting clients across industries.

    Long hours, can be difficult to work with certain senior leadership and clients, demanding job with little upside at junior levels.

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They do a great job developing their people. If there's certain skills you'd like to work on, you can let it be known at the beginning of a study and the engagement manager will let you take over a workstream that will help you develop that skill. Also, even when it comes to leaving McKinsey, they're willing to help you out and not blackball you for studies or anything like that

    Cons

    Some people find the job not particularly thought provoking, but I say this depends largely on what type of study you are on. Other people feel that consulting as a whole is another form of outsourced labor, and I would say that McKinsey is not immune from this trend (again, depending on what study you are on).
