    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

    Pros

    Nothing is good there if you are support staff.

    Cons

    You will work like a slave. Your pay is minimal with very little chance of ever being promoted. It is extremely hierarchical. You get zero recognition.

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    + Talented colleagues + Ability to play a role in significant decisions + Exposure to executives at large companies and institutions - leads to hands-on learning, especially related to executive communication

    Cons

    + Depending on the team, there can be an emphasis on busy work (i.e., making sharp PPT decks rather than producing meaningful content)
