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.

5.0 of 5 stars

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.

BCG is hands down the best consulting to work for.
