    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    I seriously cannot think of one pro whatsoever

    Cons

    Long hours, employees who basically throw you under the bus, management that doesn't care to hear out your side of a situation at hand and do not care to guide you in the right direction, partners that expect you to be an entertainer and constantly smile, smile, smile.

    Advice to Management

    If you are looking to hire hardworking employees then do not expect them to be some sort of entertainer or company clown for your guests and fellow colleagues. Employees are human and have good/bad days. As long as they get the work done and are not rude or disrespectful then it shouldn't be an issue. To ask some of your admin staff to smile constantly and say hello to each and every person that walks through your... doors is simply unrealistic and ludicrous!
