    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many pros to working at McKinsey. I would go for the experience of working there for a few years, but not try to make a career out of it
    - Really smart people
    - Challenging problems
    - Learn McK problem solving and communication

    Cons

    It's not the kind of place that you want to make a career out of:
    - Very political
    - Clients are all B or C players (remember that the A players don't need consultants) so don't go there if you want to work on cutting-edge issues
    - Senior management looks at people as capacity
    - Travel is unsustainable

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2. Tremendous platform for broadening your horizons and learning quickly

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

    Pros

    Incredible exposure to senior business leaders, constant feedback to develop as a professional, an amazing set of smart, interesting, motivated colleagues. A remarkable opportunity to expand both your breadth and depth in industries, geographies and functions.

    Cons

    The work can be quite intense, but this makes sense in the context of the problems clients engage McKinsey on are both important and difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to the values and mission
