4.3 of 5 stars

Here's your chance to test what being a real-life consultant at a top 3 firm is all about
San Francisco, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Real life scenario -- on the ground, in the trenches with a client. Always working to solve problems and communicate solid strategies.


Downers

Extremely structured -- almost too much so. Many events were a great chance to get to know partners but there was a lot of pressure to give up Friday nights throughout the summer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you prepare well for interviews. They are casual, but very intense. All the people that work at BCG are extremely intelligent and love to probe at answers to find the best solution.
