    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work & lots of travel

    Cons

    Dont expect to have a socal life outside of work including weekends As a consultant, expect to spend your weekends doing work and when you may have a breather, then you need to do your own expense reports to claim back your own money (and which you will have to fight to get back) Go and join a technology company where business margins & salaries are better. And there is work life balance Benefits not real...

    Approves of CEO

    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.

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn’t hurt to slow down a bit. Continue to focus on wellbeing and look after these wonderful people before they move on or burnout.

    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Range of industries to get exposure to

    Cons

    Hours are extremely long, highly unsustainable Little control over case selection Issues raised are usually brushed over or swept over the carpet (be it mistakes by HR, misinformation in review sessions, or complaints from consulting team)

    Advice to Management

    Treat your junior staff with more respect
