Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – January 23, 2018
BCG is a company of culture, they know what is it to work in an organization, by that I mean the perspective they have toward organizational behavior toward HR, they know that and they know how to implement it
Associate (Former Employee) – Santiago, Chile – March 1, 2018
Working at BCG, you can definitely be expected to be stretched to new levels.
You work with incredibly talented and capable people who have really thoughtful insights regarding many of the problems you encounter on a day to day basis in some of the world's most capable companies.
Career advancement and benefits are great, provided you can sustain the very demanding work schedule (a typical day can run for 12-14 hours or more).
If you're young, super intelligent and very motivated, this is one of the best places to jumpstart your career
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – January 23, 2018
Team environment is strong at BCG, affiliation is important and appreciation is constant. People here strive to build each other up and support one another, instead of tearing each other down to get ahead like some companies.
Non-consulting IT (Current Employee) – Chicago – January 14, 2018
Boston Consulting Group makes a crazy amount of money and margins that any business today would want to have. However, it comes at a cost to most employees who cycle through the company. The "up or out" culture is baked in and daily someone from your region in the company says their good-byes. Imagine if BCG tried to retain talent. Unfortunately, that baked in culture translates to employees who did not sign on to the consulting practices. If you like an always-on, rat-race culture, this is the place for you. If you're lucky and get assigned the right gig with the right senior people, you'll do fine. At least you'll meet some very bright people, build a solid network in the areas you work, and probably land on your feet when it's time for you to go and go you will.
Free meals, Free snacks and beverages, open-space work environment

BCG is one of the best companies to work for in the world. Aside from the maximizing the growth trajectory for employees, it offers outstanding benefits, and has an amazing culture. Some of the best years in my life..
Information Security Analyst (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 26, 2017
The management is vert cut throat. Once you are not in favor of management, it is time to go. It is expected you do everything correctly. One mishap and your job can be in jeopardy. Only way to advance yourself is to become friends with your boss to advance. However, the benefits are the best part of the job with free dental and medical. Steer away from this place otherwise. Most individuals are underpaid even though this is a multi million dollar company. There are great individuals who work here otherwise, but you have to be careful or you could be in for quite a ride.
