- Senior level exposure
- Lots of feedback, so you will learn

Cons

- "Client, Firm, You" ... in that order (i.e., you come last) :-)

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Exposure to working on the most pressing concerns of the world's largest companies, brilliant colleagues, and a world class professional development program make McKinsey an interesting place to work. There is always opportunity to explore a topic that you are interested in, and intrapreneurship is encouraged.

    Cons

    Prepare to disappear for a few years, the hours are long. Work is fast paced and always urgent. Brilliant people can be nasty to each other as they strive to get work done on a tight deadline and to advance their careers.

    Pros

    Challenging work environment where you're surrounded by smart, motivated people and working on issues that are redefining companies and industries. As a research analyst, you get to see how different companies are facing similar challenges. You get a unique perspective on the industry.

    Cons

    The company has an always-on, type-A culture. The line between work and life is blurred because for many of your colleagues, they are one and the same thing.
