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

Pros

Smartest people, best projects, truly incredible internal support staff

McKinsey is defined by a set of values, not a book of rules.

Cons

Lifestyle requires trade offs to make it work. Expect long hours and constant travel. Generalist model constantly places you outside of your comfort zone

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

    Pros

    Mckinsey has an environment that forces you to grow and learn really fast, and you are always surrounded by top-caliber, super driven colleagues, which makes working really a lot of fun. GREAT employee benefits that make 90% of other companies look really bad.

    Cons

    Long hours, a LOT of travel (I personally spent > 1/3 of my nights in a hotel, and I'm not the worst) so it really is tough for folks with family to balance between work and personal life, even though the Company claims that it's trying hard to help its people find the balance. However, weekends and PTOs are sacred at McKinsey...you can pretty much totally disconnect from work during weekends/PTOs, so at least you have some down time.

    Advice to Management

    Driving balance between persona life and work should really start from the top...When all the partners are working like crazy and keep pinging their teams for this or that, and everything must be finished within a couple of hours/ 1 day maximum...how can you expect your people to be able to make any meaningful change in work/life balance?
