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

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!

4.8 of 5 stars

Experienced outstanding dedication to developing, challenging, and supporting the individual, a real community
San Francisco, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Office mates and friends, hanging out on the weekends, Starwood points and flying business class


Downers

It can be challenging to adjust to the time management - you manage your own hours which can be long, but are much better when managed well and balanced against sleep, etc.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you care about integrity, creativity and critically thinking about how to deliver value for a client, BCG is a good fit work-wise. If you like being around sociable, friendly, extremely smart people who are absolutely dedicated to sharing their experiences, BCG is a good fit people-wise.


Advice to Management

It would be great to have more senior women role models


Would You Recommend

Yes

A snapshot of the education you'll receive as a management consultant, with the social support network to help you transition
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The reality of my case experience, the sense of ownership I felt over my work, and the social connections the company helped facilitate


Downers

Most interns, including myself, were only exposed to one case experience--would be nice if timing worked out to get multiple, shorter experiences


Advice to Potential Interns

This is definitely the best job you can have as a 22-year-old, and starting as an intern softens the transition to an extremely challenging profession


Would You Recommend

Yes

The most fun and fulfilling summer I have ever had while working hard at the same time
Detroit, MI | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


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
