I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pay and benefits are great, very smart, nice people, fun to work with, everyone works hard

Cons

I am a manager in a support role and this is a very ambiguous culture for us. It's impossible to get anything done without lots of partner support, and yet everything takes a long time and a lot of effort because if the partners can't agree they let things ride because the culture is so consensus oriented.

Advice to Management

Don't hold your managers responsible for things not getting done when you are unwilling to lead or make hard decisions

    Pros

    Teams, Training, Learning environment. Mckiinsey is a great place to work overall if you can manage the lifestyle. It has tremendous opportunities

    Cons

    Hours, Travel. The travel can begin to wear on you after awhile, and the hours can sometimes be brutal. But overall its worth it.
