I have been working at Boston Consulting Group as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Everyone is genuinely caring and wants to help

Cons

There are occasional times it is necessary to work overtime

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create an internship program from sophomore year where they are boarded on a team and learn on the job. Offer them further opportunities throughout their career.

    They will work you to the bone, with no consideration for your personal life, but it's great for your resume

    Pros

    *Amazingly smart people
    *High quality output
    *Strong compensation plan

    Cons

    *Work/life balance is horrendous
    *Zero job security - when the economy is down, hoards of consultants are let go
    *Very political despite what it claims

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a true "one firm" strategy - politics are rampant, with each office constituting its own little fiefdom with its favorites. Also stop lying to yourselves about your employees being happy - everyone's here to get 1) a resume-booster, 2) money, 3) combination thereof, knowing full well that the product of their labor ends up in Partners' pockets
