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

    Pros

    Talented, engaging employees, amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Working on the admin side is very different, pay is ok, no bonus, people stay for the benefits. Management tends to ignore poor administrative managers, they let them continue even when turnover is in their departments is extremely high. HR support in nonexistent, if have any issues with your boss or a coworker you have no one to support you or even speak with about the problem. The jobs are very narrow because the company is so big, which makes many job administrative work heavy. In recruiting, they tend hire people who are over qualified and are somehow surprised when the employees are unhappy. I wouldn't recommend the company to another recruiter, but would recommend the company to friends who work in other fields.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay bonuses to admin employees, set up a better HR support system for firm employees.
