    I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Personal perspective - Values diversity, promotes healthy work-life balance, invests in your personal growth, supports your pursuits of passion. Client perspective - true partnerships not just another consultant, helps build lasting capability and delivers sustainable impact.
