Working on the technical area

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The technical area is good, the only problem sometimes depends on the team you land on, but overall everyone is very open to change and talk. You mostly will have a job as long as you want to work.

Buen salario y beneficions

Pagan bien pero son en extremo delicados y hay que abarcar demasiadas cosas en muy poco tiempo

Awesome workplace with competitive pay and quick advancement

this job is great, the travel is optional and frequent, business class, 5 star hotels (ritz carlton), the pay is competitive, there are clear expectations for performance and deliverables, regular feedback and promotions, raises are way more substantial than just inflation like industry players, management cares about the work and the work is meaningful to clients and the world.

Pros

5 star hotels, business class travel, remote work optional, $100k down payment loan to buy a house

Cons

meetings are at all times of the day, so work does not turn off before 7am or after 6pm

Benefits are amazing!

Workspace and culture are fairly decent. Benefits are completely paid by company for employee and very minimal for family coverage. Starting pay is decent but could be more.

Fast paced and high pressured environment

Client service is huge and often comes at the expense of employee wellness. If you're on a partnership path and can stick it out, it can be great. Non client service paths struggle to be seen and aren't always respected.

Pros

Great pay, work day flexibilty, great on resume

Cons

Long hours, dominant and aggressive attitudes, lack of respect for functional roles

Un environnement unique

C'est une entreprise très unique; on aime ou pas mais ce qui est certain, c'est qu'on apprend énormément (et les collègues sont brillants !)

Better than MBA

Learned everything there is to learn about how to run a business at McKinsey. Better than going to MBA. Lots of hard work and long hours though. Not a lifetime career for everyobe

great salary and benefits, but no advancement

great salary and benefits, but no advancement in this firm. Office culture is toxic and management struggles in communication and effective advocacy.

Great inclusivity

Work hard, play hard. McKinsey offers a lot of fun opportunities for the employees to bond and has incredible benefits. The consultants are on the road generally Mon-Thurs so Fridays are busy.

Great people in difficult situations

The firm works hard to hire great, team-oriented people. Managers do the best they can to support and encourage their teams. There often is not enough staff to do the work leading to high stress.

Pros

Great people and culture; amazing benefits for families

Cons

Poor work-life balance; if you're placed in a team that is a poor fit then tough luck

Team oriented workplace that offers great compensation for excellent work.

McKinsey & Company is a world class employer that values individual performance while maintaining a culture of team effort. Every one counts; everyone's contribution matters. At the end of the day, there is a wonderful sense of job satisfaction.

Big projects but toxic culture

Toxic environment; micro management, fear and threatened about the evaluation; make you work 12-15 hours a day.Projects are high impact; you deal with C-level clients; you learn a lot from different industries.

Great company, as long as you don't work in a service center

McKinsey Service centers, Tampa in particular, are poorly managed and don't treat executive assistants particularly well. Company values and culture aren't extended to service centers, and we were reminded often how "replaceable" we were. Policies are enforced selectively, and yearly reviews and promotions aren't based off of merit - instead your rating depends on how friendly you are with upper management.You are a number to them, nothing more than data on a spreadsheet, unless you are a consultant. They will use their fantastic benefits to hold over your head and it's how they retain the administrative professionals who haven't chosen to leave yet.

Pros

Catered Friday lunches and great benefits

Cons

Zero culture in service centers, you are a replaceable asset to them and not a person.

Cons

It might take some time to be promoted

Hard work but high growth

Hard work but deeply rewarding and impactful. People are exceptional and highly driven. Culture is a little intense depending on which team/ office you’re a part of.
