Pros

Very few workplaces offer the types of challenges that you can get at BCG. BCG targets the best students from the top undergraduate and MBA programs. This makes BCG a much more enjoyable place to work because you know that you are working with the best. I most enjoy working on different client engagements and getting the opportunity to continually learn new industries and skills.

Cons

The travel is a little intense at times making work life balance a challenge.

Advice to Management

Make sure to keep BCG focused on recruiting the best of the best. This is what makes this place so great.

    Pros

    4 characteristics drive a very satisfactory career at BCG: * Personal development focused on individuality over standard mould * Positive internal collaborative culture that shuns internal competition * Consistent firm strategy focused on people, balanced growth and client service philosophy * One of the only firms left that foster a truly generalist staffing model (specialize by year 4 or 5)

    Cons

    2 down sides to a consulting career in general * high travel, depending on which office you are serving out of (although BCG's regional staffing model greatly minimizes this compared to peers) * challenge of balancing bureaucracy as firm grows in size

    Advice to Management

    Globally some offices are culturally less sensitive to work life balance and personal development focus compared to others. We should enforce a universal bar and push capable local management to try harder in enforcing better employee experience in offices globally where gaps are known relative to best practice.

    Pros

    Clients are the best companies in the world, colleagues are the smartest people I've ever met.

    Cons

    This is not an easy job. You work long hours, it's intense and you are constantly being evaluated - which is good and bad: it pushes you to do your best and to improve (and you get plenty of feedback to improve), but sometimes you just want a pat on the back or a high five without someone also saying "...but these are your areas for development."
