Great place to launch your career

Project Leader (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

Pros- Exposure to solving some of the toughest problems of the greatest companies in the world
- Smart co-workers
- Awesome brand & exit opprotunities

Cons- The alarming amount of new business coming from non-core (strategy/CD/Mkting) work (PMI/PMOs/etc)
- Less & less time and resources provided for case teams to actually solved the problems they are hired for resulting in incomplete analysis & relatively poor recommendations
- Super arrogant kids right out of college

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you're staffing teams adequately enough teams to complete projects to a high standard.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Highly variable rollercoaster ride

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

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


    Pros: Great people, especially at the lower levels of the consulting staff. Junior staff has opportunity to make significant contributions to the output and have a voice. Excellent… Cons: Lack of control over type of work and experience. Lack of transparency behind processes, such as staffing and career development. People tend to get less interesting… Advice to Senior Management: Be more open to other ways of thinking and working -- e.g.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
