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

When everyone in the office including the partners say they're jealous of the interns, pay attention.
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Summer Intern Events (happy hours, summer architectural boat tour, Second City, Partner Intern Dinner, Cubs Game, BBQ, etc.), Passport lunches (free lunches where you can take a partner or principle out to lunch), Office retreat to Mackinac Island in Lake Michigan, sponsored significant other visit during the summer, ability to take ownership on a module, ideas treated with respect and interest even though you are young, interesting intelligent and down-to-earth people surrounding you


Downers

Sometimes it is intimidating being surrounded by very competent, fast, and intelligent people on your case team who seem to know exactly what they are doing, where you find yourself struggling to keep up when usually things come easy. I feel very intellectually challenged, but I think that is a good thing too.


Advice to Potential Interns

This job is both intellectually challenging, yet they really care about their people and try to make the job as sustainable as possible. They realize that getting the internship is very challenging and that gives you street cred as you walk in the door.


Advice to Management

N/A

Fast paced learning experience with extremely valuable returns
Houston, TX | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Really enjoyed working in the team environment and collaborating with other consultants. The project was very interesting and I was given real work that added value to our team.


Downers

The learning curve is pretty steep in the first week or so and it takes some time to develop the skills needed to succeed.


Advice to Potential Interns

Investing time up front to learn about your project will allow you to deliver impact early in the internship.


Advice to Management

Internship training was relatively short, it might be beneficial to spend a few more hours learning the tools that interns use most during the summer.


Would You Recommend

Yes

BCG Summer Internships: Honesty over Selling.
Dallas, TX | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The realistic nature of the work. Seeing my work presented to clients and being able to relly own my modules. The expectation for an intern is high, and they treat you like a full-time employee, making for a steep improvement in your performence in the first few weeks.


Downers

The summer experience depends heavily on the project manager and case that the intern is staffed on. Therefore, the intern must try to extrapolate an average of all the cases over the summer instead of referring to his/her own.


Advice to Potential Interns

Find someone to trust in the company--someone who will be honest with you and walk besides you with your concerns and doubts. It makes for a much more comfortable experience.


Advice to Management

Training could be a bit more rigorous to lessen the learning curve.


Would You Recommend

Yes
