Great team work
Consultant (Former Employee), HoustonSeptember 10, 2013
We met every morning at the PMO office at the client's site
Started the day with a team review meeting
Break into groups to interview and follow up on contacts with the project on the Client's side
The hardest part was developing over 20 slide decks for every review meeting.
It was fun but extremely fast paced

Challenging & fun environment - interesting cases & top-class colleagues
Consultant (Current Employee), Sydney, NSWNovember 17, 2013
Pros: fantastic culture, interesting work, great colleagues

The best parts of this job are the variety of interesting cases and the people with whom you work. You're always learning new things, building your skills across a variety of industries and roles, and working with people who are smart, funny, and helpful. Although the work can sometimes be very demanding in terms of short deadlines and long hours, it – more... is more than worth it for what you learn, and for the environment in which you learn it. – less

How is BCG
Business Process Reengineering Intern (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 10, 2013
Pros: free breakfast, good atmosphere, great compensation
Cons: management is a bit confusing and the roles overlap too much
Great company to work for, it gives a decent push at your resume. The work environment is ideal for a productive time at BCG. The learning is based on an advanced knowledge sharing between the employees, you can clearly feel that people at BCG do not work for themselves, they strive for an excellence in business that the company represents. I'd say – more... that is what makes BCG different than any other company you can work for, it's bigger than yourself, it's contribution to the world of tomorrow. – less
