Great company, a little stiff.

Summer Business Analyst (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at McKinsey & Company as an intern for less than a year

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

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… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time


Pros: Mckinsey & Company is an intense, ever changing environment where either you flourish or you don't. It can be an immensely great opportunity as… Cons: While you are there, it will be difficult to balance anything else. Long work hours, high volume of work- so work life balance is what… More
