    I have been working at BTS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Extraordinarily fun culture
    - An inspirational CEO of BTS USA
    - Amazing place to hone and develop soft skills
    - Cross industry exposure
    - Intellectually challenging client work
    - Excellent client list
    - A variety of travel, including international
    - Opportunities for upward mobility, with clear career road maps that lead to promotion when followed properly
    - Plenty of growth opportunities for juniors
    - Willingness to put juniors in client facing roles
    - Flexible with working from home
    - Unlimited time off
    - About to have a dope new office in NYC

    Cons

    - Very sales oriented culture that, in my opinion, values an additional dollar of internal revenue more than an additional dollar of impact to a clients business

    - On average weak middle management that is poor at developing and coaching juniors

    - The company operates with a triple threat model, which means each consultant is expected to develop solutions, deliver training sessions, and sell more solutions or sessions. This model makes it difficult to do one thing well and can challenge quality of life. DISCLAIMER: the company might be moving towards a more specialized model soon

    Advice to Management

    - Stop promoting people just because they hit sales numbers, there is more to the road map i.e. project leadership and growing stars. If you do promote them and they are poor PLs or people leaders then create plans for them to improve or move them into an individual contributor sales role
    - Truly focus on client impact

    Strategy Implementation Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BTS.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume via an online portal, they were doing on campus interviews and I was selected. It was a 30 minute interview where he asked me various sales-type question (e.g. pitch the company to me) and asked about my quantitative background. It wasn’t what I was expecting for a consulting interview.
