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

Pros

The chance to work with really smart people and independent offices with great perks. Great company culture with good core values.

Cons

Little to no growth path for admin staff and very easy to get "comfortable" with the benefits and perks offered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that admin staff are valuable and capable and would like the opportunity to grow as well.

    Pros

    Extraordinary colleagues, interacting with CEOs and board members much earlier in your career than in most other jobs. Great for experiencing wide range of industries and functions. If you don't like your boss/team/project you just need to put up with them for a short time and move on to the next project.

    Cons

    There is not time left for anything else in your life. Stress levels are extremely high and sleep is a luxury. On paper there are many women's initiatives going on, but in reality it is extremely difficult for a mother to continue working for McK for an extended period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would set up a hard stop on the number of hours worked per day.

    Pros

    McKinsey provides accelerated career growth, and is an amazing place to build a network. McKinsey pays well, and your travel budget/stipend is generous. So you stay in good hotels and eat well on the road--which is nice, since you're always on the road!

    Cons

    You're going to work hard, and you're going to travel a lot. Some folks get lucky and have some in-town clients, but expect to be on the road M-R every week of your first three years.
