    Pros

    - Incredible mentorship and constant development from all levels (BA through Director)
    - People are genuinely fun to hang out with (my closest friends are all from work)
    - Exit opportunities are unparalleled (anywhere on the top 50 list from Glassdoor)
    - Don't work on weekends (seriously, never work on weekends)

    Cons

    - Hours can be long at times (have worked past midnight more than once)
    - Not as easy as they claim to work across sectors and project types (can be typecast easily)

    Advice to Management

    Improve the staffing model, but overall don't let McKinsey lose their identity.

    - Firm interests are always over your personal
    - Very intense rythm (which is both Pro and Con)
