    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.
