I recommend 1-2 years at McKinsey to everyone that I know, regardless of their field or background (STEM, arts, medicine, etc.). The pace of learning, especially during the first year is unparalleled, and the skills developed are generalizable to all professional life.That said, if you don't quickly find work at McKinsey that is interesting, you will very quickly burn out.
Travel, benefits, advancement opportunities, feedback culture, cool projects
high-stress, long hours, sometimes boring work
My review went great, this was 2nd time that Mckinsey wanted me to come to work for them and I finally said yes. After two years was enough, too much unnecessary stress, massive micromanagement including going to bathroom, team leads bully and management is aware. When asked a question not to respond written up for talking back. Not a good work atmosphere.
No growth or respect and lots if bulleying
It's a very exciting place to be in. Your colleagues are great, everyone is super smart, projects are exciting and you get to travel a lot.The pay is also very good. But you work all the time so you don't really get to enjoy it.
Would you rate your company five stars?
Rate your employer to help people make better career decisions.
It is awesome to have the opportunity to work with great people on challenging problems. Working at McKinsey provides you with the opportunity to develop yourself professionally while helping clients solve real problems that they are facing everyday.
Part of the advanced analytics practice. Interesting team/roles going through a generational change in how to build and deploy analytics resources within clients. Good colleagues - mostly concerned about their own growth but empathetic
Some of the smartest people you will ever come across. Culture and investment in the people is hard to beat. The only downside is that the travel can be stressful and ultimately you are an agent, not an executive. Passivity and risk aversion can be high.
Great people, great culture, great exit opportunities

Great Firm! Constant focus on client service and bringing distinctive problem solving to complex (and sometimes ambiguous) challenges!Great place to build your overall business acumen and skill set.
Great diversity of clients and problem solving opportunities
I was in a research intern role -- some teams where more engaging than others, totally depended on manager -- mine happened to be super transaction and limited me to administrative tasks which was disappointingDifficult path from research intern to full time analyst in my opinion, since you have to reapplyThe Waltham office is SUPER depressing, when I was there they were trying to make it more fun/somewhere where people wanted to be, but the difference between NAKC and the front office was pretty apparent and reflective of how they viewed research staff
Free lunch on Fridays, everyones super smart and a lot of camaraderie, interesting projects, looks great on resume
Some managers are poor, location is terrible
Job with a sense of purpose. Chance to work with leadership across multiple organizations to make a significant impact. Opportunity to grow across multiple facets of management organization.
A lot of your experience depends on the pratice you're affiliated with and how inspiring the leaders are (especially in non-traditional roles) . I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for 10+ yearsLots of developmental opportunities. Most folks really care about you - have made a lot of great friends here. ILong work hours - lack of direction from practice leaders and lack of meritocracy in my practiceFocus on retention - this means adjusting scope sometimes, having bigger teams, etc. Better lifestyle for all will drive the future growth of the Firm
Inspiring values and awesome benefits
discrepency in men/ women salaries
This was a great company to work for, at least during the time I was there. Everyone was always friendly, lots of very curious, highly motivated self starters surrounded by dedicated support staff.
Excellent benefits, compensation, travel
Not a great work life balance
