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.

    Pros

    You will never be bored, the projects vary across a number of industries, and the people you will be able to work with are always top in their field

    Cons

    extremely competitive, these are some of the most driven people in the world, they are not used to being told that something can't be done or can't happen.
