I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Get to work with motivated, high-performing individuals at all levels. Work on the most interesting problems vexing some of the best companies in the world. Clients are on average great to work with and excited to work with a McKinsey team.

Cons

Still an adviser to clients rather than a true owner of a product or P&L; Travel is tough and not changing any time soon given the strong (and I feel correct) belief that the client is better served with consultants who are onsite 'shoulder-to-shoulder'

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work -- don't cut any of the training

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great learning experience, excelent teams and resources at associate level, but politics start to play a role as you move up

    will open quite a few doors

    Cons

    tough, tough, tough did I say t o u g h?

    65 hours are common and expected

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure, very interesting work, super smart/talented people to work with. It's a great place to be as a young person because you get to learn a lot about how businesses work generally. McKinsey invests a lot in its people, and you will get the opportunity to grow as quickly as you as you are willing to put in the effort.

    Cons

    Travel a lot, work long hours sometimes with little visibility, not sustainable from a long-term perspective for many people, some partners or managers are not great to work with. Your experience will be very team-specific, so if you're working with a great manager/partners, then your experience will be fantastic. Some partners/managers are notorious for having bad lifestyle or other management issues that will make the project very painful.
