    Current Employee - Junior Associate in Mumbai

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smartest set of people you will ever work with. There is so much to learn from every single person at McKinsey. Within one year I feel like I have learnt a lot. Great culture where you can reach out to anyone for help.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be tricky since this involves a lot of travel. Might take a toll on your health if you do not put extra efforts.
