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.

    Great company- Hard WLB

    Pros

    The company has strong values. Affiliation within offices and throughout regions is very high and you get to know brilliant people. There are opportunities to add tremendous value to local communities. Its a really great place to learn a large amount very quickly.

    Cons

    Teams are often understaffed leading to high workload and little to no work life balance. Feedback culture is overly weighted toward areas for development to the detriment of the individual.
