    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.

    Cons

    Doesn't have a typical corporate work structure so you don't have a boss at McKinsey - this can take a bit of getting used to especially if you are an experienced hire.

    Lots of developmental opportunities. Most folks really care about you - have made a lot of great friends here. Incredible exposure at a young age.

    Focus on retention - this means adjusting scope sometimes, having bigger teams, etc. Better lifestyle for all will drive the future growth of the Firm
