    Pros

    When one leaves, the name opens doors.

    Cons

    Work-work balance. Horrible for anyone with a significant other because of the long hours and unpredictable travel requirements. Any company with such a high attrition rate is that way for a reason.

    Pressure-packed and stressful.

    End-product is almost always unsatisfactory and at the cost, one feels happy they are not investing in the client with the exorbitant fees The Firm charges.

    I have rarely met someone who has left McKinsey that wasn't entirely satisfied with their decision when they realized the relief of no longer working there.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
