I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I've had phenomenal casework experience, the opportunity to make a real difference at organizations that needed the help. I manage incredibly talented teams and am constantly growing on the job.

Cons

Very demanding lifestyle, in hours work, in travel, in stress levels from the intensity and importance of the work. Casework experience has an element of luck in it - I've had almost unbelievable opportunities, but other people are far less excited about their cases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep pushing the company to grow, opening new offices, expanding our footprint.

    Smart, ambitious people from business and science/engineering backgrounds
    Nerdy and friendly culture compared to Bain or McKinsey
    Interesting projects
    Opportunities to travel and work abroad

    Cons

    Long hours
    Travel can be heavy and takes a toll on some, but it's part of the consulting lifestyle
    If you have specific interests, can be difficult to make sure you work on them
