Rewarding and challenging, a BCG experience is everything (and more) an intelligent and ambitious college student could ask for.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Unbelievable amount of responsibility given to summer interns; Very supportive and friendly corporate culture where managers truly take an interest in your development and learning; Regular peer reviews and reviews from your manager to make sure you know how you're doing; plenty of social events over the summer to integrate us as a summer class and also with the rest of the firm - included a weekend in Miami!


Downers

The assignment of projects for the summer could've resulted in hit or miss cases for few of the interns. Since we are there only for 10 weeks, chances are we are staffed on one case for the entire summer so if you don't get a case/industry you are particularly interested in, it might not reflect a true BCG full time experience where the diversity of opportunity is greater.


Advice to Potential Interns

BCG is a place that knows how to keep employees happy. This is important for anyone entering the corporate world. They keep you engaged with the work you do and with the sociable and friendly culture at the firm.


Advice to Management

I have absolutely no complaints.

A consulting experience that is as real as it gets. Great access to senior partners, genuine mentorship and custom-tailored experience
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

(a) Great access to senior partners - be it through scheduled events or informal ones like lunches and coffee chats; (b) mentorship: thorough process of evaluation and feedback that was genuinely aimed towards my self-development; (c) custom-tailored experience: giving me projects and work that I am excited about


Downers

Internship is usually just one or two projects - and given the duration of ten weeks, it is hard to evaluate consulting as a career choice


Advice to Potential Interns

BCG"s core strength and differentiator is a people-oriented culture. Understand the strength of that culture and see if that appeals to you.

They did a great job building comraderie among interns. Great balance between social and professional get togethers.

I was going to school about 45 minutes away so had a bit of a commute.

Fantastic place to spend the summer
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

High level of responsibility, supportive culture, strong mentorship


Downers

Less partner interaction on my case due to team structure


Advice to Potential Interns

I was deciding between BCG and McK and went to the office where I felt a stronger cultural match. For me at least, that worked out well--you have to work with the people every day, so it's important that you like them.
