I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Excellent experience, great opportunity to advance your career, and opportunities to learn a variety of topics based on your interest

Cons

Very political, ambitious colleagues may down you to higher ups for gain (seen this with those of similar tenure and had lower tenure employees do the same when I was senior), company now tracks every thing you do via electronics and you may run into problems if your private political views are expressed on company email or phone are different than those in your office (e.g. You are a Christian conservative in Cali), keep you personal life absolutely private

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The feedback culture is best for personal and professional development, challenging problems to solve, an intellectually stimulating atmosphere, problem solving and analytical sharpness get top priority, colleagues are lifelong friends!

    Cons

    Travel took a toll on my health and took me some time to learn how to manage my health with the work and travel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    India office had Friday flybacks and not Thu flybacks which is the common practice in US offices. I believe things are changing now but my advice would be to institutionalize Thu flybacks so colleagues get more time to network with each other during in-office Fridays

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

    Pros

    Powerful toolkit, tremendous depth & breadth of experience. Perspective on multiple industries, multiple functions. Unlimited opportunity for growth. Deep global resources and knowledge.

    Cons

    Occasional hierarchical people. Great training but insufficiently integrated. Chaotic sequence of training. Some issues with culture clashes among multinational employees. Good attempts made to head these off, but some are of course inevitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on eliminating hierarchy. Develop clearer sequence of initial training to make it integrated and show path of learning in clear terms for new incoming consultants.
