Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men
to other women
I worked at McKinsey for about 7 years. It was a great experience, but I didn't know how political it would get as you get more senior in the Department. McKinsey is a Partnership and this is an important fact to remember - it's not just about your own performance but also which Partner is in charge and who is in their support network - as the lead Partners move around so do political allegiances, especially in the support staff departments. You might well be doing a great job but if there is no-one to bat for your team, you won't last long. Maternity leave was for the most part uneventful - they will leave you alone while you're on maternity leave but most McKinsey women prefer to keep in touch with the office and it is easy to do so most of the time.

I've worked here for 4 years across 2 offices and multiple sectors/industries. I believe that McKinsey is truly committed to creating an environment where everyone can succeed and thrive, including women. There are numerous programs that have been designed with flexibility in mind (these are open to both men and women) and the number of these programs has grown substantially since I joined the company. While consulting remains male dominated, there are certainly female role models and many male roles models and sponsors as well. One of my favorite "women friendly" things about McKinsey is our evaluation system, which I think takes a significant amount of bias out of reviews.
I think McKinsey does everything possible to foster a positive working environment for women. In addition to several initiatives that I've been involved in, I've also been really happy to see men participate in the dialogue in really meaningful ways, particularly the leadership serving as a good example. The focus on mentorship has been really important to me, and I've been lucky to have several female mentors who have made opportunities for me.
