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.
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.Continue reading

One of the best places to work!Mar 3, 2023 - InternRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There is a reason why BCG is consistently named one of the best places to work! First of all they have amazing benefits! 100% employer paid for Aetna's top tier plan. The company also always has events that allow you to interact and connect with those outside your function. There is a completely free full barista bar where you can get coffee at anytime of day, along with employer paid lunches three days of the week. Although you can always find something to eat. One of the best things about BCG though is the people and your team. BCG really values having happy employees who have the opportunity to grow and develop in their roles and give you ample support to do so. The people are really what make BCG so great, literally everyone you meet is friendly and supportive.
The only con I can really think of is that the office can be a bit difficult to access via public transport, especially if you live on the green line.
