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

Pros

Develops analytical frameworks and networks which remain valuable for life. I learnt more at McKinsey about thinking that at any job in my career. The company conducts itself with the highest integrity.

Cons

lack of control over time, and stressed out engagement managers who should not take themselves so seriously. NYC office works harder than other offices. But the networking was fantastic

Advice to Management

The most amazing brand. As custodians you need to protect it

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at McKinsey are incredibly bright and driven. The majority are even kind. The culture of giving and getting feedback is also fantastic for people who want to improve themselves. It's also profoundly challenging so you truly grow and learn quickly. Learning about multiple industries is also exciting.

    Cons

    The late hours would be tough anywhere but when you are simply re-wording a powerpoint slide for the tenth time because the partners can't agree on what's best, you start to question your sanity. Add to that the frequent travel (Monday 6am flight out, Thursday 6pm flight home for months on end) and it can get tough.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful about too many leaders on a given project. It typically doesn't generate too many new ideas and just creates burn for the teams.
