    I worked at McKinsey & Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good experience, broad range of topics you can work on as intern, good name on you cv.

    Cons

    Senior colleagues do not pay very much attention on training and coaching of interns, the work atmosphere is not very positive, everyone sees each other as competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Try judging people by the work they do, rather than by the way they present themselves

    Pros

    Interesting clients with direct access to senior management. Internal leadership is very skilled and you get lots of opportunity to learn new things and explore new topics.

    Cons

    Long hours and not much personal life. Be ready for a heavy travel schedule sometimes cutting into weekends. If you are not demonstrating personal growth that puts you on the track to Partner you will be pushed out.
