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.

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.

Would You Recommend

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