Very smart people, great culture. I enjoyed working there and would have stayed if it weren't for the travel involved.

Pros

Really smart people, and they care about making you better. Review process is best I've seen anywhere, and if you stick around, pay gets better and better.

Cons

Travel. I was traveling 4 days a week pretty much every week. Fine out of college, but not what I wanted longer-term

    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Access to business executives - Very strong training program: analytics, presenting, slide writing, managing client relationships - Consistent, 360 feedback culture - Typical 2-year track to move to next level - Rigorous, clear, and common job reviews provided during / after each project - Exposure to many different industries and business functions - Excellent comp and benefits, especially at the lower levels in comparison with similar opportunities

    Cons

    - Typically extensive travel - Long hours (always 60 hours+ per week) - Many short projects (<5 weeks), which are exhausting "sprints" and often prevent the development of strong client relationships or team bonding - Forced rotation among managers can mean exposure to great managers and poor managers with little to no choice - Rotation among projects & managers requires consistent getting up to speed on managers' styles; may not click and can lead to poor reviews - Some offices have fewer long-term or large clients, forcing a very exhausting, consistent sales culture - Interview process only moderately successful at forecasting employee performance - Verbal focus on work-life balance, but in practice, depends greatly on the client, the type of project, and most importantly your manager. Again, unusual to have <60 hour work weeks, and will generally involve travel - Some offices are very travel heavy, while others have more local work


  2. I hope to never leave!
