    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place for ambitious professionals. Very interesting projects, great people and tremendous opportunities for learning and career advancement. Great investment by McKinsey on people development

    Cons

    Balancing work and personal life is hard. Travel model is quite rigid with not much flexibility. Having said that partners are really good at allowing time off for personal reasons.
    As you get more senior, politics get much more critical in your career advancement (partner election)
