    Pros

    Working at BCG provided me with the opportunity to work with some of the smartest, most talented people I have ever come across. Between the high-level, interesting problems and the top-tier clients, BCG is a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    Typical top-tier strategy consulting challenges - long hours, frequent travel, demanding performance standards. At the entry level, very little control over projects you work on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize performance review processes across offices

    Pros

    Among the smartest colleagues you can find, cutting edge, issues oriented, data driven - all with a client focus. You will have as many development opportunities as you choose to take advantage of.

    Cons

    It's all about the numbers - work environment getting increasingly impersonal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Double down on the people - it's not just about the partners
