    I worked at McKinsey & Company (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    + Everyone you speak to is brilliant
    + You gain access to one of the best networks in the world
    + Lots of opportunity for growth, both personally and professionally
    + Benefits are amazing

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is horrible, this place is all about working not sleeping
    - People are so busy that they don't always have time for basic niceties with team mates
    - If you are not a partner-track consultant, you are not as valued and invisible to some
    - People only socialize with their client engagement team, no time to see anyone else

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that your support staff is just as impressive as the consultants. Sometimes, more so!

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

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with very clever people and to see lots of different organizations

    Cons

    Led by folks who don't really understand what it means to excite, inspire and motivate people
    The premium here is on how smart you are and how well you come off to your senior colleagues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You ask for people to be entrepreneurial and yet the systems and structures in place discourage that and reward safe-bets, pleasing senior colleagues

    Negative Outlook
