Amazing place to work and grow.

4.0 of 5 stars

May 2016 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

You can find an expert on literally anything at the firm.
Everyone is dedicated to help you develop.

Downers

You will do well if you fit into the firm's mold of how it think stuff should be done.
Work-life balance is still a struggle.

Comments

To succeed at McKinsey you need to find the people you like working with very soon.

Has exceeded my expectations

Takes a year to really understand how everything works

Comments

I am surprised how many people plan to be here for 2 years yet stay 10. It is an amazing place to get great exposure to amazing products and then move on to an exciting role if it gets to be too much. The amount of interest you get having McKinsey on your resume is unreal. I have worked for firms that would rather hire people that can't make it at McKinsey than top performers at Big 4 firms

The most amazing career accelerator imaginable

The unbelievable skill development trajectory, the unbelievable compensation and exit option trajectory, and the mentorship and caring. People really truly care about you as a person and your balance.

Downers

The structural things about the industry of consulting that no Firm can avoid. It requires some travel, it requires long hours at times given how much clients are paying and how much they justifiably expect, and the occasional unpredictability because we need to be responsive to our clients. My firm handles these issues as well as any firm, but you can only do so much.
