    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great learning experience: analytical and problem solving skills, strategic management, executive level communication
    exposure to top leadership in big companies
    challenging
    great people

    Cons

    heavy workload, starts being very competitive once you make Associate Partner
    Services therefore very dependent on clients' health and willingness to contract new projects
    disconnected from real business impact, very internally focused

    Advice to Management

    Put more efforts in helping and guiding new Associate Partners on the right path, really make it easier for working mothers (not just saying things but taking action), care more about people

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

    Pros

    Get exposure to the biggest and most influential companies across the globe, interact with c-level executives in your first job out of college, rigorous problem solving

    Cons

    Long hours and extensive travel/time away from home (Monday - Thursday) potentially unsustainable lifestyle

    Advice to Management

    None - I think that Dom (the managing director) is taking McKinsey in the right direction, particularly around alternative paths to partner, working to keep women on the CSS track with flexibility options, and generally trying to improve our ways of working

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sets you up for your career, good mentorship by some senior partners, ability to take on work well ahead of others at similar tenures

    Cons

    Work life balance cam be tough. Some partners have unrealistic expectations, often demanded by unrealistic clients who are paying top dollar and under much pressure themselves

    Advice to Management

    Cut down fringe benefits like retreats, recruiting events in lieu of slightly higher headcount and larger teams to help with work life balance
