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

Pros

Diversity of clients / industries / functions that one can get to know and understand. Huge personal growth and exposure to cutting-edge thinking. Great brand name recognition. Overall - it's one of the best places to get to understand multiple facets of business in a number of industries.

Cons

Intolerable hours and travel. Lack of "follow through" on most projects (i.e. only early implementation is usually included in a scope).

Advice to Management

Foster office culture - since most of the people are travelling all the time - attachment to people from the office suffers

    Pros

    * best internal mobility offering among top consultancies (both in terms of geography and industry) * strongly value-driven culture that supports effective teamwork * on average very flat hierarchy with strong emphasis on "obligation to dissent" * excellent alumni network useful in finding a post-McKinsey job (if necessary)

    Cons

    * if possible, stay away from projects in countries known for particularly bad work-life balance, incl. Germany, Italy, South Korea * pays less than other top consultancies

    Advice to Management

    Try to standardize operational practices across countries/offices a bit more.
