I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Wide range of industry and functional project experience. Phenomenal stepping stone to almost any subsequent business career in a large organization.

Cons

Inevitably you will be placed on a project that is either boring, tedious, highly time-consuming, or all of the above. Consultants are billed out at ~10x their salary so there is a huge arbitrage opportunity and thus most of the most talented consultants move on, leaving some variability in the quality of the partner group.

Advice to Management

Refrain from selling non-value-added projects even if there is a short-term financial gain for the firm to do so.
