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).

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company part-time

    Pros

    They are a large company and therefore very selective on who they choose to hire.

    Cons

    If you don't go to their set schools, the likelihood of you getting in is very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a person doesn't go to the ivy league doesn't mean they aren't exponentially smarter than your list schools.
