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

    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.

    "Great company if you accept the "away from home""

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    - Great colleagues and infrastructure - Tons of resources available - Great office locations - Travel and expense benefits

    Cons

    - Long hours - Clients can be difficult to handle from time to time - A lot of colleagues / friends leave before you do - Inconsistent promotion cycles between offices

    Advice to Management

    Streamline promotion cycles to promote the "one company idea". This includes tenure credit for transfers and alignment of job titles across offices.
