    Good first job, but not for the long run...

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work life balance is taken care of. Nice first job, with good exposure to clients and opportunity to learn lots of reusable skills like excel, ppt and SQL / Alteryx / Tableau. If you join the right team at the right time, career progression can be fast. Group of extremely nice, caring and helpful people. Everyone is really smart so you might feel stupid right after joining. Base salary is good compared to other consultancies. McK network and repo is really valuable.

    Cons

    Extremely volatile evaluation system might hamper development. Not necessarily meritocratic career progression. Leadership is not really inspiring. Too many people stick around longer than they should due to poor exit opps to the damage of new, more motivated employees. Can become extremely boring and repetitive if you can’t have exposure to multiple projects.

    OK for now

    Nov 20, 2016 - Analyst 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Its part of McKinsey (Good branding, access to their e-learning resources and best non-Salary benefits and health insurance). Networking opportunities if you try - Supportive and fun team mates - Good working culture - Steep learning curve at the start. Good learning opportunity for newbies and career switchers - Unique data driven insights from huge data base can impress clients - Responsibility given and client ownership even as an analyst - Management tries to care about your wellbeing - Good working hours compared to McKinsey consultants

    Cons

    - Although part of McKinsey, the culture, operations, management, values are separate. Training is not as thorough, less committed to your personal and career development (compared to McKinsey) - You have to be extremely detail oriented working with large data sets to do well in this job - No travel - Can be exhausting and mundane to do the analyst role of collecting and checking client data especially after multiple changes from client. Processes are long and still very manual, it's easy to be bored after awhile. Most of project time is spent doing this instead of the actual analysis. A lot of room for errors - Data base is huge but not well organized - High attrition rate can affect morale - Long notice period limits exit options - Internal moves within McKinsey do not seem to be encouraged

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Company cares about the employees - Very nice colleagues (no gossip or prejudiced/judgemental people) - Flexible working hours (I read a comment below where is written that you get a warning when you're 10 minutes late, I don't think that is true at all. I never heard of anyone that got a comment) - No 'go up or go out' principle (meaning you can take as much time as you need to get promoted, they will promote you whenever you are ready) - a lot of responsibilities

    Cons

    - salary is poor. All employees complain about the salaries, many look out for other jobs because of this, but the management still does not want to increase the salary - long working hours at times (this makes the salary even poorerlong working hours at times (this makes the salary even poorerlong working hours at times (this makes the salary even poorer!!!)

    Pros

    - Focusing on one industry (banking, insurance or telecom) allows to develop a strong knowledge of this industry (and quickly become an expert) - Good exposure to clients and to data management process (from day 1) - Positive culture overall - Can lead to good exits

    Cons

    - Low salary compared to hours - Slow progression (very varied between teams) - Important turnover impacting the London office culture negatively
