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

    Pros

    BCG is a well-known company to work for in terms of its reputation in the consulting world. The company offers the best health benefits I've ever seen and provides in office snacks, breakfast and lunches on a daily basis. The work culture is corporate but friendly and it depends on the location of the office. Overall the company is a great company to work for and the people I have encountered from the top down have been pleasant during my career here.

    Cons

    Depending on the cohort you work in flexibility is not as flexible in roles like Administrative Assistant. Management puts forth an effort for flexible schedules but in reality, compared to other positions and roles in the company the Administrative Assistants have the least flexibility. Promotions on a large team like the one I work on are slow to come by and seem to be biased at times. You have to take on a load that is beyond stressful to prove yourself for a salary increase in this role. Lastly, feedback is encouraged but not received well so be intentional and mindful about what you want to say.

    Pros

    You feel like your actually contributing and you get to work with amazing people doing extraordinary things.

    Cons

    Management in the NXA office is fairly new, could use some management training.

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group for less than a year

    Pros

    The company knows that it needs improvement in the specific Atlanta office and they are doing everything to improve the culture.

    Cons

    Everyone is not treated equally. A lot of biases in the office, drama, and people there that are unhappy and are "bad seeds" affecting new hires. The old needs to be released in order for this BCG office to really thrive. Management also needs to stop promoting those that are drama filled and messy.

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are the golden handcuffs

    Cons

    Cliques, terrible work life balance for the salary, management do not care about your well being. If you fall into the right “clique” you are fine, but if you don’t, watch out! Not a healthy work environment.

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are the golden handcuffs. But actually once you leave, you realize benefits are also great at other companies.

    Cons

    You are analyzed for social behavior and cues that are completely unrelated to your actual job performance. The pay is FAR BELOW pay grade for assistants spanned across competitors. The raise is a joke and the bonus after it's taxed at 40% is laughable.

    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.

    Pros

    The culture is second to none and the benefits are amazing. Everything is covered and only costs $5 copay for anything you can imagine.

    Cons

    Certain business team structures has a limited amount of upwards mobility but if you are able to network and have the willingness to learn, you can move far.
