    I worked at McKinsey & Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    $50 for dinner and $35 for lunch means great food all the time!
    Lots of miles and starwood points due to travel and hotel stays
    Incredibly smart colleagues to learn from from top MBA and PHD programs
    Very caring environment
    Instead of flying back home for the weekend, you can leverage the fly out to go anywhere you want!
    Exposure to top management in industry
    Ability to be exposed to multiple industries through going on different studies

    Cons

    Long hours (8am to 1am) occasionally
    There is a lot of travel which might be a bummer if you dislike traveling
    There is always high pressure to perform

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job!

    - The firm invests in their people - plenty of opportunities for training and development
    - Large and receptive alumni network
    - Lots of social activities (e.g., retreats, happy hours etc)

    Cons

    - Work-life balance can be tough to get right; depends highly on people you work with
