Featured Review

Focused on taking care of their people and doing the right thing for the clients. Long-term plan, willing to invest, not just short-term profits.

- Manager

BCG is an amazing place to work. You learn so much, and everyone is really looking out for each other. We tackle once-in-a-lifetime problems for our clients and drive to tremendous impact.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Prestigious brand that opens doors for the rest of your career.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Open structure about base pay. The variable piece is in the bonus and is heavily merit based.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

The culture is very focused on structuring your own approach to the clients problem. Heavily dependent on finding a good mentor if you aren't already familiar with the consulting game.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

One of the three top strategy and general management firms in the world. There is no doubt that McK, Bain and BCG are the top tier and those three alone. Further, ranking those three against each other is pointless. As a BCG alum, I would argue with anyone who tried to elevate one of those three firms' market reputation above the other two, even if they were trying to elevate BCG.

Our leadership is thoughtful and brilliant. Some of the smartest folks I've met in my life.

Employee - Manager

Our compensation structure is best in the industry. Last year, the firm offered everyone a 5%-10% raise on top of previous base salary, which was already very competitive.

Employee - Manager

Our health plan has no parallel. Profit sharing is also nice.

Employee - Manager

BCG has a very flat culture, and open communication is strongly encouraged, as is apprenticeship and mentorship. We trust in each other as the default.

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

I worked in the Middle East office and itseemed to me that the culture was not supportive of Non European, non white people. Performance evaluation was a joke.. Everything was based on whether you were part of the in crowd or not. Good evaluations were discounted based on preconceived notions your advisor has of you

Employee - Senior Associate/Consultant

Unimpressive leadership

Employee - Manager

The firm is dedicated to client delivery and will stop at nothing to flawlessly execute client engagements. Unfortunately, this same refrain does not carry over into the behavior of Partners and Senior Management internally. The majority of conference calls are combative and the tone of direction (when given) is command-and-control, the exact opposite of the collaborative image most consulting firms attempt to project. I would not recommend this firm to anyone who is seeking to start or resume their consulting career as it will serve only as a good place to learn lifelong bad habits in people management. All of the C-level exposure and world-class delivery does not excuse the callousness with which the Partners treat their subordinates (everyone who is not a Partner).

Employee - Manager

The culture is militaristic and command-and-control. Partners can do no wrong, provide meager direction to non-Partners and expect superlative results. Clients are not exposed to the internal fraternity-type tactics used by management to get their consultants to deliver. If they were, clients would likely consider working with other consulting firms.
