    "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.
