    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warsaw (Poland)

    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 worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Eceptional people
    - Wide knowledge network
    - Access to world best practices in every industry or function
    - With the Firm you are always on top of the edge
    - Leaving the Firm you will have a pack of offers from all the companies you could wonder
    - Very intense rythm (which is both Pro and Con)

    Cons

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