    Avantages

    Amazing culture, benefits, and career opportunities.

    The learning curve is absolutely amazing, extraordinary team diversity.

    Tremendous growth opportunities both within and outside BCG.

    By far best MBB in Italy, well diversified over the different industries.

    Inconvénients

    Long hours, travelling.

    Junior resources might feel overhelmed by the complexity / high pace of first assignments.

    Effective up or out growth model, with potential impacts on the level of stress of the "average-performers"

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep investing to improve worklife balance.

    Avantages

    BCG does incredible job of giving employees what they need to succeed. You will get more exposure and experience in a shorter amount of time than anywhere else. Employees are humble and interesting!

    Inconvénients

    You will work really hard, to the point it's difficult to prioritize other things.

    Conseils à la direction

    Making work more sustainable could facilitate long term talent retention and greater depth of expertise.

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

    Avantages

    - Amazing opportunities to learn and develop and build connections
    - Surround with amazingly talented people from very diverse backgrounds

    Inconvénients

    - Work / life balance is very challenging from PL and above (especially if you have family, kids) but this forces you to be very efficient and use leverage (the team) effectively - another learning and development challenge!

    Conseils à la direction

    Project reviews / evaluation scores and methodology needs a revamp. "we need to control grade inflation" approach forcing all reviewers to nitpick and try really hard to find (and sometimes fabricate) areas for development, which is (a) demoralizing and undermining the effort, hard work and rigor put in the good work, relationships built, and value created (b) pushing people really dedicated to BCG and consulting out to competitors or industry roles

    Je travaille chez Boston Consulting Group à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    Many of the good things that are advertised when you get recruited are true.
    - Smart co-workers
    - Such a strong brand, senior exec clients really listen to what you say and act on it
    - Consistent firm culture, and a lot of flexibilty to follow your own course and do any type of project you want to do (as long as you work hard and can do it really well)
    - All the private company perks (free proper coffee shop in the office! Lots of fancy office drink events, etc)

    Inconvénients

    A few big ones, in addition to the usual consulting life drawbacks (travel, unpredictability, best people eventually leave etc)...
    - Feel a bit underpaid (yep as the title says, 2015 & 2016 weren't great bonus years in NYC, even for people on promotion track). Hurts when you average 70 hours a week.
    - Lots of recent recruiting (esp. expanding the smaller offices), maybe too wide a net, and often left with a person or two on a team who aren't able to step up and deliver as well as the others.. more common than it used to be
    - Big company feel now, and so you feel that much more anonymous than when it was smaller

    Conseils à la direction

    Don't spend all your money on shiny new offices and have no $$$s left over to retain the best people.
    Consulting is obviously highly competitive to win client business, but don't over promise / under staff on quite so many projects. Letting so many projects get sold on the basis of "BCG discounting some of the costs" in practice just means we under staff the project.
