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

    Pros

    - amazing people and a uniquely caring performance culture - unmatched growth trajectory - be challenged and grow fast - work on incredibly interesting problems of huge scale - non-hierarchical working environment - c-level client access from day one - global pool of incredible experts ready to take your call

    Cons

    - long hours - travel (great at first but can become tiring if staffed outside of home office and travelling weekly)

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Learning: no where else do you grow every day and continually get better. Impact: biggest projects/problems in the world. They won't all be that, but on average you do incredible work. People: 90% of those around you are impressive - get used to feeling like a hiring mistake!

    Cons

    Lack of control: client first (which is great) It's about the Firm, not you: people engage McK for the brand, not for the people. Personal brand building is seen as a no-no, and it means when you leave your access to opportunities and networks instantly goes away.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let up on the diversity agenda - it is hard and it will move slowly. Remain committed!

    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They take care of you, amazing diversity, intelligent people, great exposure and development

    Cons

    During peaks of demand, it can be pretty hard on lifestyle. But I've found significant flexibility to alternate between hard and less-intense projects. Also, culture could be improved to be more collegiate- a bit of a feeling of 'everyone prioritising work over office culture'

    Advice to Management

    Promote office culture more; there are certain times where work and clients should not always be the most important thing
