    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with people you like, respect and admire is probably the best thing about this job. This comment applies to managers and teammates alike. Exposure is great as long as you are up for the challenge of switching topics/industries once every few months, and there are people who truly believe in you and will root for you and help you grow your career.

    Cons

    Typical of consulting, hours are long and lifestyle is very unpredictable, but management is trying to make it better through "PTO" initiative. However, yet to see usefulness in Greater China region where client management is more difficult.

    Pay at lower levels is lower than other regions, which is a drawback to anyone wishing to transfer in

    Some transfer-ins have unrealistic expectations that if they speak good-enough Chinese they will be able to get the "China exposure" and work with Chinese clients. The truth is, Chinese clients even find native Chinese' language grasp poor, so staffing foreigners will be a stretch
