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

Pros

Exposure to problems and skills that you would otherwise need to climb the corporate ladder for 10 years for. Even at the business analyst level, you are pushed to interact and lead clients instead of sitting in a room doing analysis and finding data

Cons

The apprenticeship model could really be hit or miss. For a new hire who does not already have the right mindset of humbly learning from mentors or just got unlucky, the firm can be a tough place. There are few opportunities to learn the ropes outside the apprenticeship model

Advice to Management

None

    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
