I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Exceptionally smart and collaborative people -- teamwork is everything at McKinsey. The work is almost always interesting because it's so important to the clients; they don't hire the firm unless they have a really big problem or opportunity. The firm serves nearly every industry in nearly every country in the world, so there's always something new to learn.

Cons

Consultants' hours can be brutal. Consultants in general, and partners in particular, barely notice support staff.

Advice to Management

Stop talking about values; start demonstrating them.

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

    Pros

    Its like business boot camp. McK won't necessarily teach you to innovate but it will teach you a set of classical business skills in a way no MBA program can possibly match. And you'll do it with incredibly smart people working on big league problems.

    Cons

    Its hard. The lifestyle sucks. And the companies you work with often have problems (this is, after all, why they hired McKinsey.)

    Advice to Management

    The consulting industry is always under pressure, but they know that.
