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

    Pros

    Great office space - but no one is ever there.

    Cons

    Very elitist culture, snobbish and condescending. Very political and white supremist culture. Most leaders are not from the US and are very snobby. Do not recommend.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to get variety of experiences across industries and training to be more structured and strategic

    Cons

    Feedback process ad-hoc and broken - many times reviews are not given in time for employees to react to- which is essential given the pace in which up-or-out decisions are made at a consulting firm. Work can sometimes lack substance given the nature of the business which is strategic advice versus running a real business - many times a lot of work and iteration is made for nuances like wording, slide layout etc.

    Advice to Management

    Timely feedback. More specific coaching mentorship for working through development. Senior leadership to avoid unecessary iteration and consider the value of rework

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Great place to do STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT CONSULTING. In two years you will learn everything about management consulting as an analyst Your problem-solving skills in a professional management context will be top notch. You will learn about 2-3 industry or sectors. You will probably learn about doing business in 2-3 countries. You will learn to prioritize, or at least, know when you are NOT prioritizing well....

    Cons

    If you truly believe your are a born entrepreneur then you will want to consider other options as a bridge to starting up your company. Management Consulting is a typical bridge in MX but actually NOT the best practice into getting really UNCOMFORTABLE once you kick off your start up.
