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

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

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As my first job out of university, I enjoyed the experience, connections, and real world learning from BCG. It exposed me to new working styles and real office pressure.

    Pay was pretty good for a recent graduate

    Benefits were also excellent

    Cons

    - There's only so much you can move up in the a consulting group, and with BCG I recommend taking your experience elsewhere after 2-3 years
    - work hours are very long
    - very competitive environment and little collaboration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how to foster a more creative environment and how to attract a more diverse team.

    Pros

    Interesting work. Great colleagues. Great learning place.

    Cons

    All employees are not treated equally. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employees informed about changes. Senior management decisions all happen indoor without informed the employees who will see the change in prior. Very political at their of the ladder.
