BCG Intern

5.0 of 5 stars

November 2015 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Amazing culture; learned how to be efficient in any task assigned to me and was surrounded by incredibly intelligent people

Downers

There can be a steep learning curve in the beginning

Comments

Keep on doing what you are doing because it is clearly working

BCG promises quite a bit...and overdelivers.

October 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Best in class compensation.
Attention to work/life balance.
Most creative of the major firms. Least mechanical.
Great intellectual atmosphere.
Consistent, top-notch feedback.

Downers

Travel can wear on you even if you're young and unencumbered.
Case quality varies.
Hours can be long.

Comments

Find a good case partner--one who gives you genuinely helpful feedback--and do at least 5 cases a week leading up to the interview. None of it is terribly hard, but you do need to prepare.

Great Company with an amazing culture

My colleagues are great people. I've never met such a concentration of talented and team-oriented people in the industry.
