I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

+ The people are amazing - lots of unique backgrounds and interesting PhDs + The learning is fast-paced - new Learning at BCG (LAB) is full of amazing training + Career guidance - always transparent, career development lets you know where you are at all times + Office culture - everyone is always back on Fridays. Lots of dinners and outings. + PTO makes the hours more manageable and predictable, makes it a lot more liveable

Cons

- Work hours can be long, but this is highly variable from project to project. - Learning curve is steep. If you're not quick at picking things up you're going to have a rough time

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing, it's amazing how fast the company is growing

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Good opportunities to learn some important skills.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is very difficult. Professional service is removed from the actual work. I prefer to develop depth of expertise rather than breadth of experience, which can be hard.

    Super smart people working on and solving some of the most difficult business problems. A strong social ethic that dedicates teams to solving the problems like world hunger.

    Cons

    Super critical environment with a low tolerance for mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back some of the personal touch that existed in the organization with John Clarkeson at the helm.
