    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

    Pros

    - Huge responsibility from the first day
    - Exposure to C-level clients from the first day (unlike in more developed markets)
    - Very rapid personal development

    Cons

    - Often inhumane hours. On average you finish on ~11pm, often even ~3am
    - Sometimes not enough supervision
    - Limited influence on project choice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the culture of staying late. Control managers who like to do that.

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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