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

Pros

Exposure to problems and skills that you would otherwise need to climb the corporate ladder for 10 years for. Even at the business analyst level, you are pushed to interact and lead clients instead of sitting in a room doing analysis and finding data

Cons

The apprenticeship model could really be hit or miss. For a new hire who does not already have the right mindset of humbly learning from mentors or just got unlucky, the firm can be a tough place. There are few opportunities to learn the ropes outside the apprenticeship model

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Superb organisation with high integrity, great opportunities and excellent training. It's #1 for a reason

    Cons

    Long work hours, perfection to the point of absurdity, decreasing incremental value toward the end of studies, solutions can err on the theoretical and feel incomplete

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

    Pros

    great learning experience, excelent teams and resources at associate level, but politics start to play a role as you move up

    will open quite a few doors

    Cons

    tough, tough, tough did I say t o u g h?

    65 hours are common and expected
