Boston Consulting Group

When evaluating an offer’s health insurance plan, what are the elements to be considered? Monthly premium pulled from my paycheck, annual deductible or copay. Is there anything else to keep in mind? As much description as possible is helpful as I’m very early in my career and BCG had a very simple $5 copay on everything in network policy.

    Mixed experience, but the bad overshadows the good

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Fast pace learning, travel and meal perks (pre-Covid), intelligent peers, chance to experience life in many big companies.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance (often worked 90+ hour weeks) leads to burnout, then hard to get sick or annual leave. No choice on industries or projects. Big diversity issue with senior management (good luck progressing if you're not Caucasian). Intimidation and bullying from project leaders is rife.

    Overrated

    Pros

    LOTS of free food, and again more food and great parties and diners at the expense of very generous (dumb?) clients (or maybe they have no idea where their $ go?). Great salary (although if you do the math by the hour you may not find it so attractive). Great benefits . Great learning and development options. You will meet some really smart (and arrogant) people; this will give you a chance to build a network for the future.

    Cons

    The cons exceed by far the pros in my opinion. If you want to be part of an organization that values arrogance over knowledge, gossip and constant subjective evaluation over team group, and true organic added value, if you are a Trump fan and wish to be part of a group that admires and provides support to the Trump administration (CEO, Rich Lesser is a enthusiast) , if you want to be part of a white boys’ club that does not promote diversity (besides what they advertise there is almost no minority that reach the partnership level) then yes, this is the right “club” to join.
