Approves of CEO

I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

Pros

McKinsey is still the best consulting firm out there - no questions asked. If you get an offer, jump at it.

Cons

Work life balance while an area of concern and work by the company can still be bad. Politics like any other company are at play.

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent experience, great opportunity to advance your career, and opportunities to learn a variety of topics based on your interest

    Cons

    Very political, ambitious colleagues may down you to higher ups for gain (seen this with those of similar tenure and had lower tenure employees do the same when I was senior), company now tracks every thing you do via electronics and you may run into problems if your private political views are expressed on company email or phone are different than those in your office (e.g. You are a Christian conservative in Cali), keep you personal life absolutely private

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with very clever people and to see lots of different organizations

    Cons

    Led by folks who don't really understand what it means to excite, inspire and motivate people
    The premium here is on how smart you are and how well you come off to your senior colleagues

    Advice to Management

    You ask for people to be entrepreneurial and yet the systems and structures in place discourage that and reward safe-bets, pleasing senior colleagues
