    Former Employee - Consultant in Atlanta, GA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Salary is top notch, especially out of MBA -Benefits are unparalleled ($5 insurance) -Learning opportunities are fantastic if you get on a good case -Exit opportunities (constant messages from headhunters) -Meritocracy

    Cons

    -Long hours / horrible WLB -Staffing (particularly in Atlanta, the Consultant staffer is universally hated) -Focus on diversity is lip service (just look at the number of women / minority partners in the office) -Some factor of luck into what partners / cases you get on (if you get a good PL and partner then there can be a lot of mentorship and advancement, but if you get stuck on a bad case early on then you may... get stuck in a negative cycle) -Constant stress (though expected because it's client services and everything needs to be client ready at all times / this job attracts a lot of high caliber but highly competitive people)
