Pros

Incredible opportunity to work with leading companies, top government officials and thinkers to tackle some of the most challenging issues in the world today. Over the past year I have participated in many professional development courses, have pushed myself to be a better communicator and thinker. McKinsey has greatly supported me in developing core business skills. I am glad I came here.

Cons

Long hours, lots of travel - can be difficult on personal life. I think I have accumulated 200,000 frequent flier miles this year, and I have no desire to use them because the last thing I want to do is to get back on a plane for vacation!

Advice to Management

Make sure to continue to support Associates in pursuing their interests within the firm.

    Pros

    Incredibly smart people, amazing professional development opportunities and the best benefits package around. For non-consultants, work-life balance is attainable. The firm is very accomodating for those with family and other personal situations. The diversity within the firm is truly impressive. I worked with people from all over the world on a daily basis. A truly global organization with a global focus - not a US firm with overseas offices. Creativity and innovation is rewarded.

    Cons

    Compensation for non-consulting staff is just OK. The more senior you get, the less opportunity is available. Takes a long time to acclimate to the distinct McKinsey culture, but it is worth it. McKinsey has it's own style of writing, speaking, presenting, etc. Until you sound like one - you will not be accepted as one.

    Advice to Management

    Review succession planning strategy for non-consulting staff.

    Pros

    McKinsey is a very challenging environment and there are great opportunities for professional growth. I have been here for many years and have had several incredible opportunities to move forward professionally and feel confident I will continue to grow as a professional here at the Firm.

    Cons

    McKinsey is a very challenging environment, which can lead to long work days. As a result, there can be a slight work/life inbalance at times. However, with a supportive team and manager, this can be managed.

    Advice to Management

    I have no real advice at this time to provide to our senior leadership team, as I feel they are incredibly supportive and encouraging and communicate with the Firm adequately as it relates to firmwide issues or other matters.
