I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Exceptionally smart and collaborative people -- teamwork is everything at McKinsey. The work is almost always interesting because it's so important to the clients; they don't hire the firm unless they have a really big problem or opportunity. The firm serves nearly every industry in nearly every country in the world, so there's always something new to learn.

Cons

Consultants' hours can be brutal. Consultants in general, and partners in particular, barely notice support staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop talking about values; start demonstrating them.

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great, very smart, nice people, fun to work with, everyone works hard

    Cons

    I am a manager in a support role and this is a very ambiguous culture for us. It's impossible to get anything done without lots of partner support, and yet everything takes a long time and a lot of effort because if the partners can't agree they let things ride because the culture is so consensus oriented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hold your managers responsible for things not getting done when you are unwilling to lead or make hard decisions
