Engagement Manager

Engagement Manager (Former Employee)
São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

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

ProsSimply THE best top-tier consulting firm, if you want a career in management / strategy consulting, this is the place to be! Amazing learning opportunities, great leadership from hands-on partners, coaching and mentoring culture, very top notch people!

ConsHigh pressure environment, with lots of expectations and long working hours. Way too much travel, not very mindful of consultant base city for staffing purposes.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to review staffing policies to account for people's base location (i.e. staff people from Rio in Rio)

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

All about what you learn

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

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

ProsYou learn a lot, work with top people both internally and at clients, solve top management issues, good perks.
McKinsey is a great place to start a career: you grow quickly, learn about several industries and functions, have the opportunity to do a top MBA and in the end, if you find that it is not for you there will be a ton of other companies fighting to get you.

ConsLong hours, below the average compensation in Brazil (don't know other countries).
And least but most important to me: after some time the learning curve start flattering, every project start looking the same and you start get frustrating on some projects that never leave the paper (or the power point - get used to it)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
