    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people
    Very smart people
    Interesting content

    Cons

    Up or out very stressful
    Overall, most are competitive and have cold personalities
    Tons of travel
    Disagreeable clients (usually brought in by senior management, and we have to deal with junior clients)
    Not very mobile (hard to transfer offices unless you are in the top10%...which means most cant move)
    Lack of innovation, employees do not understand basic technology developments in the past year

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
