    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    1. Unparalleled learning environment- both professional and personal
    2. Outstanding peers, managers and leadership- brilliant culture
    3. Great perks

    Cons

    1. Hyper competitive- so most people on average work here for 4 years
    2. Minimal work-life balance
    3. Less chance to do creative work and very low risk appetite- its all about best practices

    Advice to Management

    1. Encourage a culture where people can try newer things. Best practices can evolve with time ;) On a serious note, I know firm is covering good grounds in the upcoming spaces like digital and data science but still a long way to go before the firm becomes a force in the same

    2. More diversity in the kind of people who are brought in. I know the firm has been making good progress here too, we need to continue doing that. I am a product of that diversity- was hired laterally as a BA- grateful for that recruitment practice and now I am running my own venture(backed by former McK partners)

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Glad to hear you also found McKinsey to be an excellent learning environment, but it's a shame you didn't have the opportunity to try new things the way you wanted... More
