I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent colleagues, very intense academic environment, non-confrontational exchange of ideas, diversity in terms of backgrounds and experiences. Lots of travel (if you want to do it).

Cons

Long hours, lots of travel, risk of not seeing your recommendations fully implemented. There are situations in which you can't pick your work (although it is manageable).

    Pros

    Coilleagues are fun, environment dynamic and very meritocratic. People are fun and tend to create groups that stick over time

    Cons

    Lack of specialization and ownership of results; you feel disposable. The average lifestyle is bad and relatively unpredictable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a life!
