Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Superb organisation with high integrity, great opportunities and excellent training. It's #1 for a reason

    Cons

    Long work hours, perfection to the point of absurdity, decreasing incremental value toward the end of studies, solutions can err on the theoretical and feel incomplete

    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
