    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    BCG has a strong culture with respect for the individual and a genuine interest in making insight become impact. The work is inherently interesting (most of the time) and you learn by being challenged on a daily basis.

    Cons

    It's a client service business and clients come first which means there are occasions when peronal life has to budge. It's particularly tricky if travel is required when difficult from a personal perspective.


  2. Solid post-undergrad work experience

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Unparalleled access to senior leaders at major organization, ability to see inner workings of top management, and opportunity to learn from some of the best. Very few jobs right out of college would offer such an incredible learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Constant travel, usually to someplace exceptionally dull. Excessive focus on minor things that don't matter much (e.g. slide formatting) at the expense of actual mentorship opportunities. Less culturally uniform than McK or Bain, meaning greater variation office to office.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the brand.
