        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

        Advice to Management

        Make work life balance sustainable to keep the best. Replace leaderahip (Director level) of the CSTs that are known for bad work life balance to demonstrate commitment to this
