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

Pros

Excellent colleagues, very intense academic environment, non-confrontational exchange of ideas, diversity in terms of backgrounds and experiences. Lots of travel (if you want to do it).

Cons

Long hours, lots of travel, risk of not seeing your recommendations fully implemented. There are situations in which you can't pick your work (although it is manageable).

    Pros

    Great people to work with, extremely challenging, very fast career with great salary expectations.
    Colleagues and managers are very demanding but also extraordinary people to work with.
    Worth while to start your career after university, if you want to setup the basis for a great career.

    Cons

    Forget personal life and making any program for the day after.
    Work-life balance is extremely bad, especially in Italian Office, not always the same in other locations.
    Despite having a very structured evaluation system it is pretty much inside-oriented, i.e. the opinio of most senior parteners is key, what the client thinks not so much.
