      Great culture, living our values

      Jul 13, 2021 - Senior Knowledge Analyst in New York, NY

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Culture of "yes" whenever you ask for help. Smartest people to work with and always doing interesting work. The company is good about practicing what they preach especially on issues like DE&I and climate action. Awesome career opportunities, either within the track you're on or elsewhere in the business. No one has to feel guilty about pursuing the topics and issues they're most interested in.

      Cons

      Hours can be tough, even for non-consulting roles if you let them. It's also a big company so systemic change is tougher than it would be in a startup. But they are super open to feedback (to the point where they ask constantly, but at least it usually makes a difference). Bureaucracy and multiple business units seem complicated for new hires to navigate at first and networking is more important than it seems.

      Amazing company, people, culture and values--but underpays internal business roles

      May 20, 2021 - Regional Talent Acquisition Manager in Boston, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      BCG is one of the best companies I have ever worked at (and probably will be over the course of my career!). The company has strong values that they truly live everyday in terms of doing the right thing for their clients and people. The people are smart yet humble, and truly care about each other. The culture is inclusive, fun and global. They offer amazing, best-in-class benefits and mobility options.

      Cons

      While BCG has very competitive and generous salaries for consulting staff, they do not pay well for non-client facing roles such as HR, recruiting, marketing, finance, etc. There is a significant gap here in terms of years of experience for roles they are hiring for and what they are willing to pay; which often gets outweighed by the amazing benefits and flexibility they offer (especially by women who have or are trying to have a family).
