Interesting and diverse work, bad lifestyle, perfect for few years but not for longer

Business Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou can choose industry, function and, sometimes, geography to work
Projects are all different and often interesting
You interact with top management of top companies - there is what to learn from them
Smart colleagues
Steep learnig curve
Many exit options

ConsLong hours (not much better than in IB: you work even more on weekdays but typically have free weekends)
Extensive travel
You are paid not enough for this lifestyle: travel and hours

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
