Great career but superb exit opportunities

It's a lifestyle choice. The complexity, workload, stress, travel.... Some people love and thrive in it. For others it's not sustainable.

BCG is the best place there is for training and career development. There are fewer associates that at the other elite consulting firms which means that more emphasis is placed on making you more productive.

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.
