Great culture and benefits, but slow moving and tough for career advancement
Support function (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 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.
Amazing benefits, free health care, good parental leave, kind and supportive people
Lack of career advancement, tough work/life balance
