Absolute best way to spend your summer.

4.9 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Opportunity to do real, impactful work and "own" your own piece of the case- incredible responsibility for a summer intern. Wonderful people, learning and development opportunities, and lots of fun summer activities.

Downers

Only downside was being on a "local" case that required about 1.5 hours of horrible traffic / car travel per day to a suburb. All substantive parts of the experience were wonderful.

Advice to Potential Interns

A bit less of a "party culture" than some of the major firms, but still a ton of fun and filled wth awesome people. In fact, I'd say more substantive relationships because there is a bit less of an emphasis on the party culture.

Advice to Management

From the perspective of a summer intern, everything is already incredible in terms of being a great place to work.

Honestly, there was not a single part of the internship that did not meet of exceed expectations.

Talk to the people. If you like interacting with BCG people, you'll love it here. BCG doesn't put up a false front when recruiting, so take note of what they are saying!

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.

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
