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

Pros

- You get to work with very talented people
- Access to huge array of learning tools (database of past cases, e-learnings, etc)
- Exposure to top management when working with the client
- Flexible work environment (ability to work from home, etc.)
- Prestige
- Constant travel provides you with many perks (Platinum membership at SPG resorts is pretty sweet)

Cons

- Project staffing can be hit or miss

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Would be nice to be able to make the leap to Consultant without an MBA

    Pros

    * Smart people who are driven to do the right thing
    * Great exposure to some of the most pressing issues at Fortune 500 companies
    * Excellent learning environment
    * GREAT health care benefits

    Cons

    * Alumni management can be stronger...career service help post transition is weak
    * Poor work life balance - you are at the beck and call of your partner and clients - but that is not unique just to BCG but something that plagues all consulting firms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Could be more entrepreneurial

    Pros

    Great promotion, development and training opportunities. Opens a ton of door to the next chapter

    Cons

    Travel can be hard - often gone 3-4 days a week. Fine if you are single and like it, but hard on families.
