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

Pros

Fantastic culture that brings out the highest quality work in most people
Amazing exit opportunities--a year at McKinsey is worth 2 or 3 years at other jobs
Huge responsibility--I was actively working with senior executives from day one

Cons

The hours can be stressful, as can the "up or out" culture. Statistically speaking, most people are not making it to the partner level. I left for business school and knew I would not come back because of the lifestyle constrains.

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very steep learning curve; offering a wide "sample" of works in various functions and industries before you figure out what you're really passionate about; providing opportunities to work with different levels of clients

    Cons

    Work/ life balance - many projects have big time pressure, and traveling is even worse in smaller offices. It can be better if you have the right location/ function/ client platform, but in general not easy to have good work/ life balance.
