Pros

- Compensation
- Career Opportunity

- Benefits
- Wide variety of practices

Cons

None. Actually, there are many, but you already know what they are: neck-breaking pace; 80 hour work weeks; constant travel; high expectations. None of those are really Cons, if you're really interested in this field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was part of management at McKinsey, and I don't feel taht any significant chagnes are necessary at this time.

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company

    Pros

    Career and professional development - if you learn well from people, can't imagine a better place to start out

    Cons

    long hours and travel - client service meaning always on call. Will likely work on a nuber of strategy engagement which can be very interesting, but don't always see the implementation and results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pay up and at the very least commensurate with competitors (Bain and BCG).
