    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group

    Pros

    Vast majority of reviews are from consulting staff not admin.

    - Pay is good
    - All the perks that the consultants get
    - International travel

    Cons

    Admin staff basically paid well but are 3rd world citizens. Except to be treated as such by consulting

    - IT Management are very chaotic
    - Flat structure; very little chance to grow
    - No real technical training
    - Expect to be on call with no recompense
    - Low budgets = weak resources = overworked people

    After 3-4 years you have essentially learnt to work adhoc and not learnt anything about IT. Don't do it if you except a career in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yes the staff are desperately committed to making things work but its not a long term solution.
