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

    Pros

    Working at BCG provided me with the opportunity to work with some of the smartest, most talented people I have ever come across. Between the high-level, interesting problems and the top-tier clients, BCG is a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    Typical top-tier strategy consulting challenges - long hours, frequent travel, demanding performance standards. At the entry level, very little control over projects you work on.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize performance review processes across offices

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As my first job out of university, I enjoyed the experience, connections, and real world learning from BCG. It exposed me to new working styles and real office pressure.

    Pay was pretty good for a recent graduate

    Benefits were also excellent

    Cons

    - There's only so much you can move up in the a consulting group, and with BCG I recommend taking your experience elsewhere after 2-3 years
    - work hours are very long
    - very competitive environment and little collaboration

    Advice to Management

    Consider how to foster a more creative environment and how to attract a more diverse team.
