Pros

working at bcg was an excellent experience. Great people, very cerebral, and almost always very humble. there was a lot of challenging work, which always kept me engaged

Cons

one downside was that the travel can be pretty brutal, but that should be a known factor going into the experience. On the whole, not many downsides

    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.
