    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

    Pros

    McKinsey is still the best consulting firm out there - no questions asked. If you get an offer, jump at it.

    Cons

    Work life balance while an area of concern and work by the company can still be bad. Politics like any other company are at play.

    Former Employee - Senior Associate in Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary (unless you want to compete with banking/ hedge fund); variety of projects that you may explore; travel to some new places (depending on your projects); working with some really smart and driven people; meeting senior executives in both private and public sectors

    Cons

    regular traveling is tough (nights away from home, flight delays); long working hours especially in Asia Offices; not always have flexibility with projects you want (guess that's part of being an employee though)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more competent professional development/ HR staff who will not annoy the consulting staff from time to time with offensive emails
