    Former Employee - Associate in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Associate in Atlanta, GA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    As a general rule you will: 1) work on Interesting projects; 2) work with really bright, motivated people; and 3) receive amazing benefits (e.g. medical/dental, life insurance, retirement) while you are with McKinsey. You do have an incredible opportunity to move ahead compared to peers in traditional companies. As a result, if you leave after a few years, you can come in at a higher level than if you had been at a company for the same amount of time.

    Cons

    Three downside; 1) no matter what people tell you, there are going to be long hours and you will need to work hard to protect your weekends; 2) you can be on the wrong study at the wrong time and end up having a poor review that can do you in on bonus/pay raise percentage; and 3) travel... it is usually Monday through Thursday nearly every week of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work hard to push the work/life balance and find ways to give consultants more opportunities to do less traveling.
