Uppers

They have literally done so much more than I ever expected to make sure my work/life balance was as great as possible given the constraints of the job. Secondly, I'm surrounded by brilliant and like-minded people that I can not only trust in all aspects of the job but also in having an intelligent conversation on any topic on my mind.


Downers

Can be stressful at times for some people


Comments

BCG hires smart people that are intellectually curious - those that do not meet that criteria would not enjoy working here.

Our development/advancement processes have become less transparent; the Washington, DC office culture is suffering.


Comments

Ask the questions that get you past the surface answers. Learn how you will be staffed, how to best navigate the culture and what criteria you will be evaluated on. Be prepared to receive good feedback often but have to push for areas for development.
