    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work with very smart and driven people, personal development opportunities, great offices, well stocked kitchens, fantastic wellbeing program in Australia, opportunity to get involved in committees outside of your role, strong focus on diversity and inclusion, recognition programs in place, regular office events to feel connected, active social calendar and the best Christmas parties and conferences I have been to!
