    Pros

    - The Firm really lives their values, it is not just paid lip service - Really smart colleagues, everyone wants to be the best for the Firm, there are always some people but generally not in a competitive way - Constantly challenged, pushed in new areas, learn a lot, never boring; you are asked to solve tough problems no matter if that is your formal job responsibility or not

    Cons

    - Everyone is over-worked - You can't get anything done without a Partner sponsor and conversely, if a Partner, any Partner, has an idea then you have to do it. This can lead to a lack of vision and unifying strategy to the work we do - Ceiling of advancement for non-consultants; there is a lot you can do and a lot of options but the path isn't clearly defined so you have to work at it, and ultimately you will hit a ceiling - Most people treat non-consultant colleagues with respect and appreciation, but those that don't create enough of a bad feeling that it taints the whole experience

    Advice to Management

    The challenges, disappointment, and issues for non-consultants are obvious and well-known. Either get serious about fixing them or be prepared for the consequences.

    Pros

    Excellent people - hardworking, driven, nice. You learn a ton and you get pushed constantly. If you want to become a jedi master of all things business, you can't do better than McKinsey

    Cons

    Very long hours and a very high pressure environment leads to continual stress. Very rigid focus on certain ways of working leads to groupthink at times.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on retaining people, even if it means allowing them to work at a slower pace.
