Great company
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 26, 2017
A typical week involves Monday-Thursday travel. There is an expectation throughout the firm for a heavy work hours during those days (typically you will work 8a-9pm Monday-Thursday.

The output of your work will always be PowerPoint slides, so you end up spending the majority of your time on that.

Phenomenal Experience at a Price
Lead Designer & Department Leader (Former Employee) –  Manhattan Beach, CAAugust 13, 2017
BCG is an amazing place to work but be ready to sacrifice most of your time. It's "business education, and the clients pay for it". In other words, you are going to school and getting a pay check. If this sounds good to you, then by all means, apply.
Pros
Travel and free meals
Cons
Long hours, stress, and travel

Top ranked consulting firm
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 7, 2017
BCG offers the opportunity to grow very rapidly in your career. While they expect their people to work hard, they also compensate well. More importantly, you learn a tremendous amount and I imagine there are few places where you grow faster.

While the learning curve is steep if you are not familiar with the consulting industry, BCG is overall a great place to work.

Excellent opportunities for career advancement, as well as top notch compensation and benefits package.

A amazingly great job with some of the best minds to work with.
Help Desk Support (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYMay 23, 2017
For the relatively shot period of time I worked for the job, I was sorounded by coworkers who cared about there jobs; and where where more knowledgeable than I was. The team took there time and allowed me to learn both my trade and professionalism. It may have been for a simple task, and for a short period as well; but it was hands down the best place of employment I have ever had.
Pros
Great work environment, Well paying, Professional

Greta place to work
Senior IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 16, 2017
Great place to work. I'm not sure why 150 characters is a requirement and why I'm being forced to write a review but that pretty much sums it up. Benefits are top notch

Great culture and benefits, but slow moving and tough for career advancement
Support function (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 4, 2017
I work in a support function, not as a consultant, so my experience is different. The people are great, the culture is respectful and supportive. The work can be interesting but can be boring, it depends on the project and the stakeholder. Career advancement in support functions is really tough. They tend to hire externally instead of promoting from within. It's very common for people to work at BCG, leave, and come back just to move into a higher role. The work/life balance can be tough at times. The people are for sure the best part of the company. Great culture.
Pros
Amazing benefits, free health care, good parental leave, kind and supportive people
Cons
Lack of career advancement, tough work/life balance

not good
IT Intern (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXApril 19, 2017
I was in IT, and therefore did not have a lot of exposure to the consultants; however, they seemed to be overly impressed with outdated technologies. Similarly, I was not impressed by the IT staff that I worked with.

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAApril 19, 2017
BCG is a fabukous company with some of the best benefits out there and very smart people. I worked in their corporate office which was not as "good" as the Consultant office and had some office politics but still a good experience.

Challenging, but rewarding work with great benefits
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXApril 6, 2017
Work as a consultant can be demanding and include travel (75% or more), but consultants are rewarded with many benefits included best in class healthcare insurance, training, and a supportive work environment. Other benefits include travel benefits for those who work on the road frequently.

For non-consultant roles (i.e. administrative and support roles), healthcare benefits are the same, but travel is limited (less than 25%).
Pros
Great healthcare, supportive environment
Cons
Depending on role - challenging, but rewarding work

Project Leader (Current Employee) –  Bethesda, MDMarch 23, 2017
Very few breaks or periods of downtime in the life of a BCGer. Very data-driven and analysis-rich working environment. Very great pay, bonuses, and benefits - but you will work very hard for them.
