    Views of McKinsey&Company from the perspective of a Research Analyst

    21 Oct 2009 - Research Analyst in Sydney
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Colleagues are typically extremely helpful in sharing needed knowledge - Promotions can be fairly quick and is truly contingent on performance - Depending on the person you get as your Developmental Growth Leader (DGL), your experience in McKinsey can be significantly affected, as he/she is responsible for presenting your case during review boards, for helping to find opportunities for your staffing, etc.

    Cons

    - Remuneration is subpar in comparison to other top management consulting firms (e.g. BCG, Bain) - use of performance reviews to "layoff" employees during downturns
