    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I started at BCG as an associate and spent ~2 years there. BCG is a phenomenal place to gain exposure to a wide variety of high impact projects and senior client settings while quickly developing a strong skillset. More than that, a number of MDPs personally invested in my career and have been great mentors to me. Across the office and my practice area, BCG has really felt like family. I loved my time at the firm!

    Cons

    Hours are long as expected but case leadership works to make it sustainable - no real cons!

    Pros

    After leaving BCG on the CT due to family/living constraints, BCG brought me back in an internal capacity a few years later - BCG has come so far in its offering for opportunities outside the CT track - which are impactful and meaningful; People and the engaging work continue to be the reasons why I enjoy being at BCG; Strong leadership support; Opportunities across local, regional and global experiences

    Cons

    Client service industry will always add a layer of stress to all of our staff

    Pros

    Working at BCG during 2020 through COVID in paticular has been inspiring! Not only have they put employees first, doing whatever they can to protect jobs but also it is inspiring to see how quickly they can pivot there focus on client needs and offerings to ensure we continue to serve at the highest standards. All whilst continuing to focus on scaling operations and innovating as a company themselves. The Global and North America Leadership should be congratulated
