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

    Pros

    1. learning from variety of experiences due to experience with different industries, types of cases, and different people.
    2. Good mentorship from seniors
    3. Develop relationships with great colleagues

    Cons

    1. Consulting is not as much on-ground job, so one might not be fully satisfied
    2. Consultants do not really have control over the final outcome of the project because final decision making resides with the clients
    3. It's a competitive world, some people might not enjoy that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure high quality mentorship and guidance for the employees

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

    Pros

    - Incredible mentorship and constant development from all levels (BA through Director)
    - People are genuinely fun to hang out with (my closest friends are all from work)
    - Exit opportunities are unparalleled (anywhere on the top 50 list from Glassdoor)
    - Don't work on weekends (seriously, never work on weekends)

    Cons

    - Hours can be long at times (have worked past midnight more than once)
    - Not as easy as they claim to work across sectors and project types (can be typecast easily)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the staffing model, but overall don't let McKinsey lose their identity.
