    Avantages

    BCG is an incredible company for one distinct reason: the people. Within all levels of the firm, the employees are kind, creative, considerate, intelligent, driven, and curious-- all without being overly competitive. BCG's greatest asset is its people, so the firm goes above and beyond to support and compensate its employees.

    Inconvénients

    BCG charges clients a material amount of money for its services; therefore, clients expect a lot of value. In order to deliver, projects are often under extreme deadlines and margin for error is non-existent. The pace and pressure can be a bit hard to get used to, but it's also one of the most fascinating parts of the job.

    Je travaille chez Boston Consulting Group à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Fantastic culture
    Excellent pay & benefits

    Inconvénients

    Our team manager was a transplant from a foreign country and did not have much knowledge about business topics, modern computer tools as well as basic etiquette. May be that works fine in his/her home country but creates lot of impediments at work for many of us.
    Again, this is just my team and may not be a company wide trend.

    Conseils à la direction

    Revert back to traditional school of thought. Most of my colleagues from 2010 and before say the work culture was much better, and abrupt increase in organizational size has been posing a challenge.

    J'ai travaillé chez Boston Consulting Group en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    As my first job out of university, I enjoyed the experience, connections, and real world learning from BCG. It exposed me to new working styles and real office pressure.

    Pay was pretty good for a recent graduate

    Benefits were also excellent

    Inconvénients

    - There's only so much you can move up in the a consulting group, and with BCG I recommend taking your experience elsewhere after 2-3 years
    - work hours are very long
    - very competitive environment and little collaboration

    Conseils à la direction

    Consider how to foster a more creative environment and how to attract a more diverse team.

    J'ai travaillé chez Boston Consulting Group en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    You can be exposed to very diverse practice areas such as telco, auto, construction, electronics, health care, etc. in a year.

    Inconvénients

    You can't sleep more than 6 hours a day. Sometimes less than 3 hours. Very challenging work environment. You have to prove yourself every seconds.

    Conseils à la direction

    We have to open more externships for seniors as it is crucial to understand the real and humble dynamics of industry. I learned a lot more after leaving consulting. Consultant without field experience can be too idealistic.
