    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    · High salary · Smart colleagues · Team events, retreats · Other benefits

    Cons

    · 12+ hours of work a day · Nature of projects vary depending on office clients (meaning you could be stuck in boring stuff for a while if you are not lucky and play your cards well) Advise for future associates out there: This is not job for everyone (I don't mean that you can't do it, it is just that you will not enjoy it/you will be unhappy), make sure you speak to other people (the more, the better) doing the role in the office you join to get a full picture of how things are before you join

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

    Pros

    Amazingly clever colleagues harvested from Oxbridge Loads of money, both salary and what they willing to spend on events etc Opportunity to make suggestions and do interesting non-work stuff in "magic time"... if you have the energy left Growth and exposure

    Cons

    Tedious work and zero time for life outside it ? Excessive expectations and somewhat cutthroat Elitist, workaholic and competitive colleagues propagate the above - you need to be like this, too, to thrive. Very hierarchical and those outside the consulting business are second class citizens

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Interesting and varied project load, great people, work/life balance increasingly prioritized, decent compensation (taking into account work load), professional and structured approach to career development, great place to learn rigour and skills you'll need regardless of where you continue your career

    Cons

    Common with short deadlines that drives long hours to satisfy partners' (or ambitious project leaders') promises to clients, a varied project load also leads to some (much) less interesting assignments, at times high travel load
