    I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time

    Pros

    Great experience workig with bright people on fascinating engagements. We had good choice over engagements to work on and unparalleled learning opportunities

    Cons

    McKinsey is survival of the fitest. Those who progress are not always the best or most inspirational but those who are willing to consistently work 80 hours a week at the sacrifice of family time. Office barometers are based off an average week of 65 hours (in reality 75 for most junior folk) where anything less is celebrated. This is not a healthy norm and this is the price (along with travel) that you pay for the experience
