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

Yes

The juice was worth the squeeze: BCG is as good as advertised.
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Varied work experience, good exposure to an actual case and responsbilities, ample opportunities to determine fit with the office


Downers

Some content of the in-office portion of training during orientation could have been more effectively delivered in pre-read slides.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take a large sample and determine if you are a true fit with the people of the organization, not just the brand prestige.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Strategy meets fun: 10 weeks of high-flying problem solving with a sea of new friends
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Ownership of my work, high-quality feedback on a weekly basis, ample opportunities to get to know fellow interns and staff at all levels, wonderful recruiting team.


Downers

Struggling to think of anything -- maybe could add a tad more optional training on how to set up a three-tab analytical model for newbies like me. Not a big deal though, as plenty of online internal training resources are available.


Advice to Potential Interns

1. Don't be afraid to ask BCGers how much they travel, what they do and don't like about their work, etc. These were important differentiators for me, and I found BCG staff very candid, which I can confirm based on my observations this summer. 2. Meet as many people as you can--connections you make in recruiting can be important as an intern.
