I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You can choose industry, function and, sometimes, geography to work Projects are all different and often interesting You interact with top management of top companies - there is what to learn from them Smart colleagues Steep learnig curve Many exit options

Cons

Long hours (not much better than in IB: you work even more on weekdays but typically have free weekends) Extensive travel You are paid not enough for this lifestyle: travel and hours

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at McKinsey & Company (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    + Everyone you speak to is brilliant + You gain access to one of the best networks in the world + Lots of opportunity for growth, both personally and professionally + Benefits are amazing

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is horrible, this place is all about working not sleeping - People are so busy that they don't always have time for basic niceties with team mates - If you are not a partner-track consultant, you are not as valued and invisible to some - People only socialize with their client engagement team, no time to see anyone else

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your support staff is just as impressive as the consultants. Sometimes, more so!
