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

Greatest possible summer experience

5.0 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Events with other interns, opportunities for development through formal and informal feedback, opportunities to engage with partners, principals, and more in relaxed environments

Downers

Can't decide, it's all good

Advice to Potential Interns

Unparalleled opportunities for growth, incredible flexibility, extreme dedication to the summer intern experience (people will ensure that you learn a lot and are challenged, but also have tons of fun). The work-life balance is as good as it can get in an industry this intense and the culture is second-to-none.

Advice to Management

Better snacks, but that's not even an issue obviously

Would You Recommend

Yes

It's definitely hard work and that is sometimes exhausting.

Advice to Potential Interns

This is a summer experience for people who want to learn, challenge themselves and are open to bettering themselves. There is also a strong element of community.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Unlimited learning and development potential at BCG

4.8 of 5 stars

Boston, MA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

- availability of training, support, mentorship, and feedback

- the 'real' nature of cases interns are staffed on

Downers

there is a lot of ambiguity in a staffing model with short cases

Advice to Potential Interns

If you want to work very hard, learn a lot, and spend a summer with the smartest people you've ever met, this is the place to be.
