Featured Review

Current Employee - Business Analyst

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

Pros

Deeply inspiring colleagues, the most difficult/complex/interesting problems, high professional growth, very steep curve for compensation, extremely generous benefits package

Cons

Hours can be long (65-75ish)

Former Employee - Business Operations Associate

I worked at Bridgewater Associates full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Truly an amazing place to work, grow and evolve as a person, and develop meaningful relationships. Co-workers become family and are so invested in helping you become the best version of yourself.

Cons

The commute from NYC is not ideal (but still worth the drive for the experience!) but my group had relaxed WFH policies and some groups are opening up spaces in NYC to work from.
