Do not join a local office if you have long term goals of moving on from an EA role. You need to join a service center if you want that(Tampa, Poznan)
Benefits are unmatched and this is how they get people to stick around so long.
If you have drive and goals, as an FSP, this is not the place for growth for you anymore
I worked at McKinsey for 2 years and found the coaching, culture and exposure to complex problems fantastic. This is a great place to launch your career or build expertise in a particular area of focus.
Great training and opportunity to travel
Management did not post opportunities, selected who they wanted to fill that position. Overlooked behavior and professionalism of those favorites (one woman was sleeping with her married boss and would meet when he was in Miami). Executives could inexplicably decide your support was not good enough and would want a change. There wasn’t a meeting about it but it impacted you negatively. The position was in a call like setting and typically workload was obtained by email. VERY stressful.
Benefit package was excellent. Lunch was brought in on Fridays for staff. Parking was free.
McKinsey is a place where you can find challenges every day. The deadlines are short and learning is enormous. They have scheduled breaks which keeps the employees at ease and also some recreation place to relax and have a chat with your colleagues. They also have a very vast pantry where you can enjoy a meal with your close ones at wor. The management is friendly and is always open for you to walk in and share your thoughts and challenges.
I left in 2016 so my review is based in my employment from 2014-2016. This is not the company to work for if you have a weak stomach for lots of criticism. Partners were vicious, other executive assistants could be worse than the partners but the worst part? My manager. In my short 2 years there I had 3 managers that were fired and 1 that should have been fired.
Pay and benefits
Training sucked. Worst culture for people that are decent human beings.
The longer you are at McKinsey, the more your skills continue to plummet. Most of the EAs at McKinsey don't know how to use Microsoft Powerpoint, Excel and Word. I was told by both partners who I support, to tell my manager that I am doing much less than I am, because they thought she was jealous of me - I think this perfectly describes the culture and the dynamic between EAs and the managers. Favorites get the time off, and the non favorites get reprimanded for taking a sick day. The EA pool is a revolving door - I've been at McKinsey for five years, and have met over a hundred EAs who have come and gone. The chief complaint for those who don't stay is the EA managers and the company culture - it's us and them. EAs are often talked down to, they support partners who don't offer any background or input into their calendars, but will yell at you, cuss at you, and flat out call you stupid if you don't read their minds correctly. If you continue to complain about partners who are abusive and go to HR, the manager will retaliate and say your insubordinate and have a bad attitude. This place is toxic and a dead end job.
McKinsey is an amazing place to learn, grow and drive a lot of impact in different industries and functions. It's demanding in every sense but also very rewarding. It can be very fast paced, but there is a strong supportive culture, colleagues tend to be very helpful, and help is always found if you need it.
To be honest, working in Mckinsey was like dream came true, It was more likely the dream workplace. Job enviornment, people, culture, weekly goals and targets were way to interesting to keep balance with personal and professional life at peace.
