Some of the world's smartest people helping clients with their biggest challenges

Senior Expert (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 5 years

ProsEverybody there is brilliant and highly capable, and almost everyone truly cares about colleagues and clients. The variety of work is exceptional, since the firm serves nearly every major industry. The potent brand name will help you get good jobs down the road.

ConsAs in every large organization, senior leadership is sometimes out of touch with realities on the ground.

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