    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful office location and facility Somewhat flexible hours Smart colleagues Diversity

    Cons

    Very bad leadership in the business unit Indifference to people Unrealistic growth expectations Bad managers left in place instead of pushed out of the business

    Advice to Management

    You need to replace some leaders in the business to clean up the mess. Listen to your people and take an interest in them.

    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    benefits, tuition reimbursement, culture, diversity, good first time job opportunities.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can get to be somewhat difficult when supporting 12+ people. Once per quarter wfh days even though job is 100% remote. Can be hard to "shine" or stand out to managers when there is such a large team.
