5.0 of 5 stars

Partner in Retail & Consumer Goods | San Francisco, CA | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The fact that every day I wake up, I have the opportunity to help our clients through the most difficult and challenging questions they face side-by-side with amazing colleagues.

Downers

Top-tier consulting is not for everyone. You don't get the privilege to coach executives through the most difficult decisions they face without having to make some sacrifices along the way (either through travel, long hours, high intensity, or all of the above). But most of the folks who stick with this job for the long-term will tell you the sacrifices are more than worth it considering the impact we've had on business and the relationships we've built along the way.

Advice to Candidates

No matter who you are, there is no better place than BCG if you want a top-tier strategy consulting experience.
