    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's got an amazing network of motivated people that are great to tap for future ventures, including funding for startups, leads on next jobs, etc.

    Cons

    It's a little bit like being in high school and the mean kids are also the smart kids. It's a tab bit elitist and I'm not sure I would ever hire McK if I were a client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't share work across clients. If I were a paying client, I wouldn't want my work to be used to help another client.

    Pros

    Salary/benefits is slightly above average for the area.

    Cons

    - Poor Management. Keeps everyone in the dark and refuses to take responsibility for anything. Will not help you or provide you with any resources. Management uses you as a middle man to implement and force unwanted policies upon firm directors while providing you with no help or back up to support them. When there is a problem the first step is to blame someone and not actually resolve anything.

    - Systems use are decades behind. Unable to work efficiently with given systems and often has to serve as IT support. Again, management does nothing about it and leaves IT issues up to you to resolve and lends no help or any leeway while having to deal with the constant obstacles.

    - No room for advancement. Raises are below annual cost of living increases in the area.

    - Very negative culture. Nothing positive is ever said or done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over.
