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

Pros

Excellent experience, great opportunity to advance your career, and opportunities to learn a variety of topics based on your interest

Cons

Very political, ambitious colleagues may down you to higher ups for gain (seen this with those of similar tenure and had lower tenure employees do the same when I was senior), company now tracks every thing you do via electronics and you may run into problems if your private political views are expressed on company email or phone are different than those in your office (e.g. You are a Christian conservative in Cali), keep you personal life absolutely private

    Cons

    Travel took a toll on my health and took me some time to learn how to manage my health with the work and travel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    India office had Friday flybacks and not Thu flybacks which is the common practice in US offices. I believe things are changing now but my advice would be to institutionalize Thu flybacks so colleagues get more time to network with each other during in-office Fridays
