    "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.

      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
