Great company, a little stiff.

Summer Business Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsMcKinsey has an incredible reputation. While you're working there you will be surrounded by some of the smartest people around. The firm opens up lots of opportunities if you want to leave.

ConsPeople at McKinsey have incredibly high opinions of themselves and tend to be hyper-competitive. The office is high stress and the work can be tedious. Additionally, in the software division, the pay is lower than what you would get at a tech company, and the work is unreliable; some days you are drowning in it and others you're not even sure why you came into the office. The communication within the firm isn't great--I met many people who hadn't even heard of my division.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
