I have been working at McKinsey & Company

Pros

Fantastic set of people, the most challenging problems, and an ability to define your own career path. Good benefits as well.

Cons

Very tough to maintain a reasonable work / life balance while working at McKinsey. It is a very demanding environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more thoughtful about (a) promoting sustainable lifestyles (b) reducing the amount of waste in work that is completed by the teams.

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company

    Pros

    Space is allow to be creative and innovative beyond the standard business practices. There is active support for new ideas.

    Cons

    It has grown too large, too global. Face time is diminishing. Opportunities to spot potential in people is thus lower. In the same way, opportunities to spot bad apples is also lowered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to smaller offices or groups. Make sure all Firm members have the max opportunity for face to face interactions with the leaders of the Firm.
