Good workplace culture, salary/benefits but work life balance is a challenge. The learning curve is steep but it is a great place to learn and evolve as a professional

Hard work, long hours and little option to switch off, but interesting work and appreciative colleagues
Office IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 January 2016
Management consultancy, so no such thing as a minor problem - all issues were "critical" and "No" is not in their vocabulary. This created plenty of opportunities to be creative with problem solving.
Very little questioning on whether something could be done, or not - the expectation is that everyone knows what needs to be done and can do it. Very little opportunity to take time out to learn, so all learning was either done outside of the office, or by working on the issues.
The office politics is ultimately what lets the Firm down badly. Bullies in senior positions allow the creation of a very tense atmosphere and leads to a great deal of job insecurity across all areas of the support staff. It also creates unnecessary cliques to form when everyone should be working towards the same goals.
Pros
Opportunity to learn a lot, Can be very colaborative
Cons
Very heavy office Politics, Way too much emphasis on "soft skills" training from people with no soft skills abilities

A great place to work with along and fantastic co-workers
Knowledge Manager for North America (Former Employee) –  Toronto Ontario5 November 2014
McKinsey and Company taught me to work independently and collaboratively. How to best manage my time to work towards the goals of the team.
I learned how to be a team player and remain focus on a task.
The people at McKinsey are fantastic. One of the many reasons why I enjoyed working there.
The hardest part of the job was navigating the priorities of the job. There was a lot of work that could be done and it was difficult to determine if the project you were working on would be the biggest impact.
I enjoyed the role I had working in the knowledge management arena and people were a great group to learn from.
Pros
Good coffee
Cons
Very little.

Good place, but too profit focused these days
Senior IT Technical Support & Media Expert (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 July 2014
Great environment to work in with wonderful and top line people. The organization used to be excellence focused, but has turned to a profit for the partners focus and has lost that something special about the place.
Pros
Occational free lunches. Wonderful office space.
Cons
Can be tough on work life balance.
