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

    Pros

    - Great learnings everyday - not only from daily research work but also from colleagues (ofcourse interact and appreciate the culture and environment)
    - Approachable seniors and other team members, enhances learning and exposure across topics
    - Ample opportunities to grow and nurture yourself (you have to make the most of the opportunities that come your way)
    - Option to choose your area(s) of research and flexibility to explore other areas as well
    - Co-operative leadership supporting your personal career goals alongside and providing the required exposure, customised to an individual's needs (make your ambitions known and set clear expectations)
    - Great work timings and not a lot of pressure

    All in all I have had a great experience during my time there and grown as a professional with research and mentoring experience. Opportunities come your way only if you are willing to take up challenges and make the most of it. Make the most of your time there!

    Cons

    Nothing really - it all depends of how you approach the opportunity :)

    Advice to Management

    Greater cross-team and international exposure would do wonders!!

    Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (London, England) in April 2011.

    Interview

    On campus interview (MBA), with two rounds back to back. The interviews were both case studies, giving an initial brief of the problem verbally, laying out the situation with limited information, where you are expected to come up with relevant questions to prompt them to provide additional data in printed form.

    Typically, the cases were single issue problems (cost saving, expansion) and where you are judged on how you structure the problem. This directly affects the questions you ask and the information you get (eg. competitor's costs). A part of solving the case would require you to make some calculations (eg. contribution margins for different products) which are fairly straightforward.

    Good overall experience, with the interviewers maintaining a friendly and open approach.
