      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

      Advice to Management

      Allow greater degree of specialization when consultants want this

      Pros

      Fantastic company. Great atmosphere, great people, true focus on deep client impact. Unrivalled learning experience from the moment you join all through your career

      Cons

      The work is intense, clients are demanding. Not particularly a 9-5 job. Not a problem as long as you get satisfaction from your cases and as long as you are doing well, but can be tough in difficult client settings

      I worked at Boston Consulting Group

      Pros

      - Great people - Great salary - Large responsibility given - Travel - Prestige - A lot of contact time with managers - Supportive colleagues - No face time required - Lots of team events

      Cons

      - Long hours - Had to work on weekends - Did not have much choice on the industry I was working on - Did not have much assigned support, I was lucky enough to network around the office to find the relevant support

      Advice to Management

      More support for summers via assigning a set number of meetings with supervisors throughout the internship. Often the meeting to do with my development were pushed aside or delayed.
