    I worked at McKinsey & Company

    Pros

    Work life balance is promoted and management wants employees to be happy. If you are a 'favorite' then your life is EASY.

    Cons

    I do have advice for the investors or clients. Do your own internal investigations at the company, do not depend on what they tell you, most of it is not reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The main problem is Management. Often they have conflicting instructions so no matter what you do, it may not be right
