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

Pros

Awesome place to work! Everyone is really great to work with! Free catered lunch EVERY Friday and something new to learn EVERY day!
Great pay and AMAZING benefits!!

Cons

Not a lot of time to interact with your co-workers and most work is done on your own.

Advice to Management

Try to schedule more team meetings or team outings. Would be great if we could have a more TEAM atmosphere.

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

    Pros

    - Name brand and the apperance to the outside world that you'll be somehow qualified because of your time at McKinsey
    - Smart, genuine, nice, and interesting people
    - Cares about work life balance as best as they can given the necessary travel, etc
    - Money to slosh around for team events and retreats

    Cons

    - Limited number of people care about personal development
    - Stinginess and overall laser focus on profits above all else, including client impact
    - Force consultant to specialize without any connectoin to personal interests or desire
    - Senior management are disconnected and very hierarchical
    - Does not follow many of its written values, which they tout so strongly

    Advice to Management

    Make your recruiting pitch - that you'll learn, that you'll be able to try out new things, that you'll be able to work with high level executives at clients - match the reality - that you'll learn very little, that you'll be forced to specialize quickly without any word in the process, and that you'll have little access to clients overall.
