Great company to kick-start your career

Project Leader (Former Employee)
Munich (Germany)

I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSmart people, great exposure to leading companies and executives, very broad spectrum of projects and insights - and a lot of fun

ConsWork-life balance is not good, work is pretty hard and if you don't manage this actively yourself, you won't last long

Advice to Senior ManagementNurture the talent, it's the key asset of the company.

Great place

Consultant I (Current Employee)
Munich (Germany)

I have been working at Boston Consulting Group

ProsIts a truly unique place to work - very enriching, challenging and generally with a very good and strong culture. Its hard work and long hours (you know that before), but you its amazing how much you can do not only in this job but specifically this company. People have a high integrity, are in general very supportive and its a great place to learn a wide range of capabilities.

ConsFirstly: Work-life balance vastly differs depending on the practice area you specialize in, but in some specific ones it certainly critical.
Secondly: Even though the performance review process is well developed the promotion process (in performance-quintiles) is not very transparent and could certainly be improved.
Lastly: More appreciation of good performance and supporting the top-performers better would not hurt.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat place - maintain the great culture but see that you better support the high performers and show them your appreciation. Support more international staffing. Increase transparency on the promotion/CD process.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
