I worked at Boston Consulting Group

Pros

Clear career path; smart people and good resources to complete your job. Teaches a number of very useful skills. Great training.

Cons

Poor selection of cases; some incompetent partners; boring cases sometimes that are more project management than strategy. Hours billed matters a lot.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire poor partners and don't take cases that don't add sufficient value to the client - it's demoralizing for the team.

    Pros

    Interesting and exciting job content; great learning opportunities; smart and fun colleagues; exposure to senior and impressive client executives; excellent comp and benefits; quick career advancements

    Cons

    Hard to achieve great work/life balance; lots of travel; long hours; quality of local leadership varies quite a bit between regions and offices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make BCG a truly global company; reduce importance of offices; reduce gaps between offices; let go non performing partners sooner rather than later; focus more on commercial capabilities
