      Best employee centric company to work for, job profile is a question mark though

      Pros

      Employee Policies - They genuinely care about the employees. Lots of perks - a tenured person will never ever leave this company. Opportunities - Galore. Sky is the limit. 'Make your own McKinsey' - A phrase used ubiquitously in the firm which means an employee can make her own path in the firm. Exposure - Right in the beginning itself you'll be presented with a lot of exposure to different kinds of projects across geographies (this does not mean travel necessarily) and across nationalities. BRAND NAME - Oh yes. This helps a lot! No kidding.

      Cons

      The work profile depends on your background and your 'Path'. The McKinsey 'Consultant' path is the most sought after. Other paths are generally 'Support' oriented. These other 'Non Consultants' help the consultants in whatever ask they might have to help them on their client projects. And it sucks. There is no challenge and a lot of beautifying the PPT. While the perks are awesome, these support kind of work will bring you down.

      Extremely biased managers

      Pros

      Good starting salary. But that's the only perk. Make experience n move to a better firm in Bangalore is currently everyone's goal

      Cons

      Pathetic leadership in blc location. Unless you can suck up to certain Managers and their chamcha Tls, you won't grow. People with absolutely no skills can become leaders with manager backing. Internal recruitment for leaders is a scam. They already select people and keep an interview to portray transparency.
