“Best run firm in the industry”
September 2018FORMER EMPLOYEE
Uppers

Unparalleled industry knowledge in Retail

Best talent at the entry level

Great back end support, e.g. research, finance, HR, KT

PTO process creates accountability at the team level

Downers

Go to market process can be a little too top down and structured

Firm makes choices about what line of business to prioritize - growth almost always wins out, over operations (which was my area of expertise)

Office based P&L's are no longer a relevant construct for global consulting businesses

Advice to Candidates

If you're a Principal or Partner level candidate, ask how the office you're joining relates to the practice area/topic area you specialize in - this will make or break your career at BCG

If you're joining the Expert Track (ECT), understand the firm's expectations for your utilization
