    Pros

    Great company culture, smart and fun people to work and learn from, steep learning curve particular the first few years. Essentially a paid business school through key strategic topics across the corporate landscape

    Cons

    As consultant you never learn to execute, so after a few years you want to next step in actually building something

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Very good company to grow and develop. Very well organized and structured, which allows you to have a great prospective of your future in the organization.

    Cons

    As main consulting firms, the less positive part is the work life balance. BCG, however, is clearly implementing strong efforts towards more flexible jobs and better alignment with family life.

    Advice to Management

    Keep implementing flex-work models and supporting women to thrive in the work place.
