I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Everybody there is brilliant and highly capable, and almost everyone truly cares about colleagues and clients. The variety of work is exceptional, since the firm serves nearly every major industry. The potent brand name will help you get good jobs down the road.

Cons

As in every large organization, senior leadership is sometimes out of touch with realities on the ground.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more to recognize the contributions of associates and staff. Partners are not gods, and they don't do all the work.
