    Pros

    Treat you very well, expense all necessary costs, very friendly and fun to work for. McKinsey knows that if they treat you well you'll work harder!

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel included in the job, which can be bad if you don't want to move around. Also long hours during the week mean you don't really have time for other fun stuff
