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

Pros

The smartest people you will ever work with, solving some of the biggest problems for the largest and most important companies, governments and organizations in the world

Cons

Hierarchical structure leads to insecure behavior among otherwise intelligent people who are concerned about pleasing their mentors/superiors and often are forced to "sell work" to organizations that don't really need it.

Advice to Management

Give more flexibility to problem-solvers to manage their own destiny.
