    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!

    Cons

    Incredibly fast paced and high performance culture (which is not for everyone and can make it feel stressful). Lots of travel involved for consulting staff which impacts work life balance and sustainability.

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work with the smartest people in the world. Amazing opportunities and exposure to premium clients and really interesting problems. Lots of travel opportunities (national and international). You learn how to work faster and to a higher quality than you thought possible.

    Cons

    Not for everyone - you have to give up a lot to work here (time with friends and family). You do build amazing relationships with co-workers which makes it perfect for singles or professional couples.
