      I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Amazing people, varied projects, constantly learning, very supportive senior management who are constantly exploring how to make bcg a better place to work.

      Cons

      Fewer short strategy projects than in the past, although I’ve still done several. Hours not great but not killer either - typically 9am-830pm although with spikes here and there, maybe I’ll work until 1030pm once a fortnight. Staffing can be frustrating as they make you feel like you have some control when really you have very little.

      Pros

      Interesting work & lots of travel

      Cons

      Dont expect to have a socal life outside of work including weekends As a consultant, expect to spend your weekends doing work and when you may have a breather, then you need to do your own expense reports to claim back your own money (and which you will have to fight to get back) Go and join a technology company where business margins & salaries are better. And there is work life balance Benefits not real...
