Does McKinsey & Company offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Job security, nice company, nice people, very attractive benefits package, professional development opportunities.

Cons

Salary below average, agile transformation gone wrong, focusing on meaningless processes, avoiding taking ownership and responsibility.

Advice to Management

Stop comparing the employee's salary to other underpaid employees in the company, this is really embarrassing. Live up to agile principals, stop "doing agile" and start being agile.

Does McKinsey & Company offer parental leave?

Pros

McKinsey is clearly a world-class company, and overall a great place to work. The talent here is absolutely outstanding, and there are incredible professional opportunities. You could spend your entire career at the Firm (and many do) and have it be just as robust and varied as it would be had you worked at multiple companies. However, I think the best part of working at the Firm is the benefits and flexibility. Our healthcare and other benefits are absolutely unmatched. We have great parental leave options that I took full advantage of in 2018, and felt I had the full support of my team and manager. I feel very strongly that the Firm cares about its employees.

Cons

McKinsey can be an intense environment, but it is less so in support roles such as recruiting. Work/life balance can be difficult on the consulting track, but in recruiting, I've had fantastic flexibility and balance in my role.

Does McKinsey & Company offer a wellness program?

Pros

Great opportunities, caring colleagues, and amazing benefits.

Cons

Almost impossible (pre-COVID) to get permission to work from home occasionally if you’re sick, have childcare issues, etc. despite folks in identical roles in other offices having the freedom to work from home as needed. Hoping that after offices reopen there will be flexibility to occasionally work from home when needed.

Great opportunities, caring colleagues, and amazing benefits.
