    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Wonderful people
    - High impact
    - Professional (no office politics (at least at our level, and specially compared to the stories I've heard from nearly al of my friends)
    - Challenging
    - Freedom to choose/ challenge

    Cons

    Not very many to be honest.
    - Probably more of a personal fit problem - I struggled with feeling a sense of ownership in projects because you always knew that you were going to leave in a few months. My thought process was always with one eye on the exit and never in the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I can think of. Just trying to fill in the word count so that I can open my account. All said and done, McKinsey is a fabulous place to work.
