I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The training and development opportunities at McKinsey are incredible. The firm places a tremendous amount of time and resources to ensure new colleagues are set up for success and can help clients solve their toughest problems from day 1. You also have the opportunity to work on private and public sector clients' toughest challenges alongside truly incredible colleagues. In McKinsey Implementation we have the opportunity to work shoulder-to-shoulder with clients and help them realize the benefits of the proposed strategy. Having the end-to-end touch on the process is incredibly rewarding!

Cons

The pace of projects, the travel, and workload are not for everyone. The firm is doing a lot to promote a solid work-life balance, but you will need to make sure that the lifestyle will work for you.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on opportunities to improve the work-life balance in terms of travel for impact and predictable schedules to retain talent.

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time

    Pros

    As an MI consultant:
    // Drive end-to-end client impact in a leadership role that lets consultants take a hands on, collaborative approach to implementing strategies at the client-end
    // Was able to drive results that make a fundamental difference to clients
    // Opportunity to coach and mentor clients to build their capabilities and help them achieve strategic goals (cost savings, M&A, post-merger integration,etc.)

    As part of broader McKinsey:
    // MI is a growing part of McKinsey and the company has invested significantly in expansion over the past one year - great opportunity to take part in the overall forward-looking direction of the group
    // Tremendous interest internally among consultants to transition into implementation roles

    Cons

    // In spite of the support provided by McKinsey leadership and partners, there could be situations where the client team isn't willing to cooperate, but that gives consultants an opportunity to develop conflict management and further leadership skills
