The most fun and fulfilling summer I have ever had while working hard at the same time


Uppers

-The people are a ton of fun to work with -There are lots of great events and activities to participate in every week outside of work -The culture is very fun and upbeat -Everyone is very willing to help you when you need it -The money is good and the hours are not bad at all -The opportunity to travel if desired makes the experience so much more exciting -The opportunity to contibute to the team and the amount of ownership given to interns right from the start is outstanding


Downers

Sometimes the work that you are asked to do can come with veyr little instructions and can seem quite ambiguous at the beginning. However, this allows you to really take ownership of your module and make it what you want it to be.


Advice to Potential Interns

You need to get some sort of a sense of how much you want to travel because it is possible that you will be on the road Monday through Thursday every week. This sounds like a lot of fun to some people, but not so much fun to others. There is probably about a 50-60% chance of being on a traveling project during the summer internship, but the staffinf coordinaters do try to take and preferences or requests that you might have into account as much as possible.


Advice to Management

I think the benefits are amazing but the salary/bonus is a bit low. I think it would be better to even scale back some of the money spent on team dinners, events, etc. and use it to offer a higher salary.


Would You Recommend

Yes

BCG is a place to learn and develop further than anywhere else in the world.


Uppers

The people at BCG have been amazing. We have had terrific access to people at all levels in the organization.


Downers

It's difficult to take a full role on the project as an intern because of the timing and your capabilities when you start.


Advice to Potential Interns

Over-communicate, take advantage of the access in the firm, and enjoy yourself!


Would You Recommend

Yes

Perfect case experience, team and office culture. I couldn't have asked for a better summer experience.


Uppers

The work is interesting and challenging. The internship class is diverse and bonded quickly. There were a lot of fun events throughout the summer.


Downers

There was nothing that I didn't like.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure to engage with on-campus representatives early in the process. While breadth is important, get to know a couple people really well.

High impact introduction to management consulting


Uppers

Direct client interactions. Visible client impact. High intensity and rigorous and energizing work environment.


Downers

Occasionally nebulous direction from team.


Advice to Potential Interns

Highly thought driven atmosphere that demands constant attention to detail and accuracy. Environment will push you to think about questions analytically and logically and will develop your problem solving skills immensely. Must be able to work on very ambiguous problems to be successful.

Yes
