    You learn a lot, have chance to see a lot of industries and work with very talented people. Especially in BCG, there is minimum hierarchy.


    You work a lot. If you are in a difficult project, you don't even sleep enough. You are expected to excel every aspect of the project. Sometimes you need to complete tasks you don't even find meaningful for the project.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Boston Consulting Group.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume, cover letter and transcript online (but through my university). I was initially really excited when I went to their info session because the employees seemed very interesting and engaging and laid back. However, the first round of interviews was the complete opposite. I had two separate interviews which were about 45 minutes each: 15 minutes behavioral and a 30 minute case. My first interviewer was extremely rude and condescending. The second was very kind and really seemed interested in my answers and the different way I solved the case. Overall, I could tell I wasn't a good fit.
