    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time (more than an 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

    Great colleagues and a good opportunity to learn, but ultimately management consulting is a tough sell.

    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.
