    Je travaille chez Boston Consulting Group à plein temps (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Great benefits. Full medical, profit sharing, 16 weeks mat leave, 8 weeks pat leave, 3 weeks vacation, 4 weeks after 5 years, free lunch. You get to work with talented/smart individuals, collaborative environment. Depending on the office you work in, there can be decent flexibility in your schedule. It looks good on a resume. We are finally rolling out trainings for business services teams that are beneficial to our work (previous trainings felt very N/A).

    Inconvénients

    Low salaries for employees on the operations side (business services). Not a lot of transparency (on ops side). Very little growth opportunities for business services teams. For assistants, who you work for can make or break you. Workloads are extremely uneven for assistants. Some of the Principals and Partners can be very difficult to work for. You aren't always treated like a human. Operations side of business does not receive many of the amazing perks that consulting side receives (e.g. women @ BCG only includes consulting staff).

    Conseils à la direction

    Invest a little more in your all your employees, not just the consulting staff. Operations is the backbone of every office.

    J'ai travaillé chez Boston Consulting Group en Contrat Permanent (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    -great benefits and pay, esteemed firm
    -backbone of company culture is a hard work ethic
    -more good people than bad

    Inconvénients

    the pros couldn't outweigh the cons:
    you don't have autonomy in the role at BCG, you have to report to your manager who microanalyses you (they have eyes into your email in all regards) and micromanages you on outlook. An EA for BCG is not for the faint of heart because the nature of the company requires that you preform with the highest marks-No problem. However, there is a problem when the manger watches your screen and has tiny issues with how you have your inbox sorted, how you didn't use a short cut she told you to create even though this short cut may be for something as small as changing your font size.
    ALSO very important to know about working on the BST (business services team) side of BCG is that the BST side and the consulting side practically feel like two different companies. You rarely see your executive (maybe a couple times a month) and you are not expected to interact with the consultants. One quickly learns at BCG that the two sides do not mingle much and it is not fondly looked upon if you do.
    Altogether, survival at BCG felt like high school drama appealing to the other girls needs on the admin team, as opposed to the executives needs. Because the two parts of the company are so separate, the executives typically don't have much say in choosing their assistants. You end up signed up in a role much different than the common EA role.

    Conseils à la direction

    -Don't allow your personal impulsive tendencies to interfere in other's professional lives. ie. don't fire and hire employees as quickly as you eloped with your partner. Exercise careful thought. // don't micromanage other's methods without careful thought, compartmentalize your personal tendencies, but accept other's methods as long as they are effective. (it's not a good sign when the team's eyes roll once you've turned your back.)

    Avantages

    Amazing benefits.
    Great training.
    Opportunities to develop great friendships.

    Inconvénients

    Support staff is not valued.
    Very little trust within the office.
    Base salary is lacking.
    Turnover is high within the EA group, and EAs are shuffled around to different consultants all the time, which never allows an EA the chance to support her/his consultant efficiently.
    Tons of office politics, "in-crowd" includes HR staff which is a conflict of interest.

    Conseils à la direction

    An employee who feels valued will work much harder for you.

    Avantages

    Autonomy over much of your work, support from peers and managers, excellent benefits.

    Inconvénients

    The company is so efficiently run that there are few opportunities to work outside of your job description. Some benefits extended to consulting staff do not extend to the administrative team (working from home, etc). Very little opportunity to advance beyond the role of executive assistant.

    Conseils à la direction

    Don't be afraid to test new models with administrative staff. Many of them are already working for you from home in their off-hours and not charging the time. I work every day during my train commute - why not offer for a portion of my commute to count toward my work day?

    Avantages

    Excellent structure, training, systems and lovely offices

    Inconvénients

    EA's are of a Stepford Wife type. If you are not willing to work evenings and weekends and remain submissive and docile, they will walk you out the door. I have seen several employees walked out due to minor mistakes and not fitting in with their ideal.

    Conseils à la direction

    Consider a flat hierarchy.

    Avantages

    There are many internal and external training's offered for personal advancement paid by the company. There are many company events that allow you to meet and greet everyone/network.You are also allowed jeans (business professional of course). Plenty of room for advancement. Alumni programs offered for past employees.Medical benefits paid 100%.

    Inconvénients

    There isn't a good work/life balance - you work many hours over your traditional forty.. Strict performance reviews - minimum four times a year.

    Conseils à la direction

    If there is an issue with an employee's performance, it's best to bring it to their attention well in advance in order to correct their mistakes as opposed to allowing a problem(s) to grow/be repeated. Nip it in the bud a from start.
