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.

    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.
