No opinion of CEO

I worked at McKinsey & Company (More than 10 years)

Pros

+ Everyone you speak to is brilliant
+ You gain access to one of the best networks in the world
+ Lots of opportunity for growth, both personally and professionally
+ Benefits are amazing

Cons

- Work/life balance is horrible, this place is all about working not sleeping
- People are so busy that they don't always have time for basic niceties with team mates
- If you are not a partner-track consultant, you are not as valued and invisible to some
- People only socialize with their client engagement team, no time to see anyone else

Advice to Management

Recognize that your support staff is just as impressive as the consultants. Sometimes, more so!

    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.
