    Pros

    BCG is definitely the most friendly and driven group of people that I have ever worked for; BCG's innovation to solve business problems continue to attract top Fortune 100 companies back as our clients and I'm learning new ideas everyday. All my BCG colleagues are very down to the Earth yet very brilliant in many ways, and I have truly enjoyed my time working at BCG.

    Cons

    The hours can sometime be a bit long, but overall, it's a great experience that one year in BCG equals to around 3-4 years in the industry!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BCG is very transparent and not really any major hierarchy when it's time to decide your "up or out" decision! Basically, all those whom you have worked with in the past have some say about whether you should stay in the company or not.

    Pros

    You can be exposed to very diverse practice areas such as telco, auto, construction, electronics, health care, etc. in a year.

    Cons

    You can't sleep more than 6 hours a day. Sometimes less than 3 hours. Very challenging work environment. You have to prove yourself every seconds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have to open more externships for seniors as it is crucial to understand the real and humble dynamics of industry. I learned a lot more after leaving consulting. Consultant without field experience can be too idealistic.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
