I worked at McKinsey & Company

Pros

Your colleagues are of a uniformly high caliber. The work you're doing is often interesting, and you get to focus in on issues more quickly and deeply than those at the client organization (you may hear a client say "this meeting is the highlight of my day .. I get to focus on the interesting stuff for an hour"). Structured and purposeful focus on development.

Cons

Not all the work you do is meaningful -- this ranges from having to work on a model or deck that you know will not pan out, to an engagement not being taken up by the clients afterwards. Your colleagues are driven and the work you do is often inter-dependent, so that the hours can stack up.

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

    Pros

    Best people in the industry, great trainings, exposure to senior clients

    Cons

    60% if the time spent perfecting powerpoint slides, only 40% doing actual work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking yourself too seriously. There are more things in life other than work and client impact.
