    Let up on the travel and do more to make a work life balance possible. When I was there there was no such thing..

    Pros

    Best practice when it comes training and professional development. Minimal politics at low levels of organization; most people at MCK are highly service-oriented and very easy to work with. Highly client-focused. In my experience, firm has a very high standard of ethics.

    Cons

    Firm has not "cracked the code" on how to build compelling career tracks for people not on the client-facing side or on a partner track (maybe they don't need to).
    CSS seem to have less and less time for non-client activity (i.e. connectivity, building office community etc)
    Off-shoring and automation has reduced number of office-based staff jobs, and made those jobs that remain less interesting... again, not sure what else could have been done, but the firm needs to address this problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage or create more opportunities for non-CSS staff to build meaningful relationships with senior management
