      Pros

      Smartest set of people you will ever work with. There is so much to learn from every single person at McKinsey. Within one year I feel like I have learnt a lot. Great culture where you can reach out to anyone for help.

      Cons

      Work life balance can be tricky since this involves a lot of travel. Might take a toll on your health if you do not put extra efforts.
