"Tough employer with the best intentions. It is a people driven business so you need to work with inspirational partners that will support you. You can 'make your own McKinsey' and have children and a great career, but you will need to be very organised and strict with your time, it won't just 'happen'."

"The company (particularly the London office!) is trying very hard to keep women and be flexible on part time work and maternity leaves. However, the nature of the consultancy job (very long hours, travel, high pressure) is fundamentally incompatible with having a family. Also, men still seem to progress to partner with much higher success rate than women."

"If you plan to only spend a couple of years, it is a good launching pad. But once you get past the Engagement Manager role, your advancement (and comp) depend on partners saying they are "supporters". This is when most women have to leave, as the (mostly male) partners will not support women and create opportunities for them. I have had senior partners lament to me that they just can't get other partners to support women, bring them on to clients, etc."

"McKinsey is making a good effort to get and keep more female employees, so I thought there were a lot of opportunities to have mentors, join office groups, etc. There is a high premium placed on being a frequent contributor during meetings, which is challenging when that's not your style."

"I like working at McKinsey. Within the practice area I work, there are actually a lot of other women as well. I think the firm also focuses a lot of time and energy on trying to make things equitable between men and women. The bigger question in my mind is whether the hours and travel will be sustainable longer term as I think about having a family and wanting to spend more time at home."

"There is a lot of flexibility to 'make your own McKinsey' -- and a real effort on the part of the firm to make the place more sustainable for dual-income parents. Women's attrition rates are still relatively high, but it is not for lack of trying on the part of firm leadership."

"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."

There are incredibly inspiring female leaders who make themselves available to advise / mentor female colleagues, and I've never felt that being a woman has had a negative influence on the work I'm allowed to do or the reviews or support I've received. In my experience, this job has been empowering and has really built my confidence."

"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."

"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."
