A roller-coaster ride

Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsExcellent 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).

ConsLong 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).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
