    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All round wholistic development, fast paced work environment, lots of opportunities to travel, access to good resources from research analysts to graphic designers making the best presentations you could ever dream of.

    Cons

    Not the best place to hone your technical skills. Not all colleagues are as smart as the brand name might suggest (except for consultants they don’t have exceptions and are all winners)

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the same standard for hiring for all teams, the whole service industry knows Mckinsey has one of the toughest screening process for hiring it’s consultants, the same level should be followed for non consultant roles.
