    Prós: It is a great company to work in with great possibilities for growth and for deciding your own path. The work environment is one the bests I've seen with great mentoring and coaching.

    Contras: Lack of work-life balance. Sadly we do have to work long hours with no extras. The company has a culture of overachieving, so mostly people work too long hours.

    Recomenda a empresa: Sim

    Muito difícil de trabalhar na McKinsey

    AssistenteEx-funcionário, saiu em 2012

    São Paulo, SP

    Prós: Tecnologia de ponta. Tudo funciona e é muito rápido. Funcionários de altíssimo nível, o que nos da oportunidades de troca de conhecimento diariamente. Por ser exigente por princípio, trabalhar na McKinsey eleva nossa exigência com a qualidade e eficiência de todos os processos.

    Contras: A empresa é dividida em dois grupos bem distintos: Consultores e Suporte (TI, Financeiro, Assistentes, Controladoria...). Para o grupo dos consultores a melhor empresa do mundo para se trabalhar. Para o segundo grupo é, de longe, um lugar extremamente difícil devido a agressividade, não valorização do trabalho, exclusão, entre muitas outras coisas impensáveis para uma empresa do porte da McKinsey.

    Conselhos para presidência: Que troquem a direção da empresa no Brasil se quiserem atrair talentos administrativos (Fundamentais para o andamento de qualquer escritório) e, também, se quiserem mudar a imagem no mercado de empresa ruim para se trabalhar, com ambiente pesado e desmotivador.

    Recomenda a empresa: Não
