    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work & lots of travel

    Cons

    Dont expect to have a socal life outside of work including weekends As a consultant, expect to spend your weekends doing work and when you may have a breather, then you need to do your own expense reports to claim back your own money (and which you will have to fight to get back) Go and join a technology company where business margins & salaries are better. And there is work life balance Benefits not real and difficult to obtain at BCG It is a multi level marketing business; Think like Amway You will typically not read a bad word about BCG given they spend so much time on marketing and managing the press Partners can earn decent money, but the rest get under paid relative to market 10 -20 years ago this used to be a good brand to work at. Now better opportunities at startups or tech companies
