Intern bonding events (Miami trip, golf outing, Yankees box, and many more), opportunities to get involved with 'extracurriculars' (a few interns played for the New York BCG soccer team and will be able to travel to Madrid to play in the BCG World Cup), amazing perks (fancy dinners, expense accounts), supportive recruiting staff that ensures everyone is having a positive experience, quality of managers
Work life balance could sometimes be tough to manage
Advice to Potential Interns
The primary difference between BCG and main rivals McKinsey and Bain are purely cultural differences. The actual work and lifestyle are similar at all of them. When comparing, pick based on personal fit. This is important because you want to like the people you spend most of your time with, especially when traveling.
Sample Interview Questions
The topics of my second round cases were:
1. An Australian bank is considering upgrading its IT infrastructure. Should it go forward with it?
2. A global appliance company's European division has seen it's competitors move production from Western to Eastern Europe. Should the client follow suit?
Advice to Management
Office-wide retreat would be great. More hands on Excel training would have been helpful.
