Excellent experience

I worked at Boston Consulting Group

Pros

working at bcg was an excellent experience. Great people, very cerebral, and almost always very humble. there was a lot of challenging work, which always kept me engaged

Cons

one downside was that the travel can be pretty brutal, but that should be a known factor going into the experience. On the whole, not many downsides
