I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

1) McKinsey takes professional development and apprenticeship very seriously. You will learn more than you could imagine, faster than you could imagine
2). Firm leadership is doing a great job navigating the firm into the future as the consulting industry changes; leadership is heading in the right direction
3). The people are fantastic and the culture is great

Cons

1). You have to have a lot of self discipline to keep work life balance reasonable
2). As the firm has gotten so much bigger there are a lot more structures and policies in place than before - feels more corporate

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great brand name
    Open doors since its a great polishing school
    Probably better than being at Bain or BCG

    Cons

    Political beyond belief
    Insecure leadership that sees McKinsey's position become less tenable by the day, and becoming more of a rubber stamp openly
    Its a bunch of fiefdoms knitted together by outsourced page making, research teams (that basically google stuff for you) and boiler plate material used as 'knowledge documents'
    Really nothing more to add, the lifestyle everyone is aware of, go in with your eyes open. Don't know why people are complaining about it, everyone knows about it!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing, the model is crumbling so do what you can while the going is still good for you
