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

    Pros

    Great colleagues, challenging projects with opportunities to learn, contributing to important initiatives

    Cons

    Lifestyle for some support staff has become not sustainable (60-70 hrs on regular basis, much more during crunches, working most weekends). Extreme cost pressure means no new hires, except in low cost locations, no more opportunities for changing roles, hours increase every year. Increasingly feel like a cog. This is an a NA location.
