    Pros

    intense experience, great learning, good brand

    Cons

    1/3 of work is just done to showcase what mckinsey is able to do (without any client need). avoiding this could get you out of the office by 8pm instead of 1am

  3. great place

    Pros

    Ich habe einen wahnsinnig guten Einblick in verschiedene Themen und sehr spannende Projekte bekommen. Gleichzeitig sind die Kollegen sehr motiviert und hilfsbereit. Außerdem wurde mir viel Wertschätzung entgegen gebracht und viele Möglichkeiten mich zu entwickeln.

    Cons

    Ein klarer Kontrapunkt ist die Work-Life-Balance. Kaum Privatleben zwischen Montag und Donnerstag sind leider der Standard. Und so spannend viele Aufgaben sind, so langweilig ist dann doch auch manchmal stupides Excel befüllen.

  8. ziemlich zufrieden pretty satisfied
