Pros

Fantastic set of people, the most challenging problems, and an ability to define your own career path. Good benefits as well.

Very tough to maintain a reasonable work / life balance while working at McKinsey. It is a very demanding environment.

Advice to Management

Be more thoughtful about (a) promoting sustainable lifestyles (b) reducing the amount of waste in work that is completed by the teams.
