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

    Pros

    benefits, tuition reimbursement, culture, diversity, good first time job opportunities.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can get to be somewhat difficult when supporting 12+ people. Once per quarter wfh days even though job is 100% remote. Can be hard to "shine" or stand out to managers when there is such a large team.
