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

    Pros

    - Fast tracking your early career
    - Unrivaled learning about working in business roles
    - Fantastic benefits
    - Young peers who love to party (I miss this the most)

    Cons

    - Culture somewhat driven by fear, which leads to results, but is stressful
    - The hours are obviously bad, although you get it back and more in career fast-tracking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More should be done to create lifestyle promoting programs that are taken seriously. By enforcing certain nights off, etc., could lead to working smarter and more efficiently, as the current system can lead to face time and always working until midnight whether needing to or not.
