    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The organization really gets behind you to make you successful. They make a number of tools & resources available to help you drive impact which is really great. Smart people, everything is well thought through (flexible employment like time for you, compensation, reviews, etc.)

    Cons

    Little work-life balance. Expect to dedicate all your time working during the week, and recovering during the weekend. Weekend work is rare but happens.

    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to smart people, great companies and interesting client work. Good training and development. Global network and excellent brand name to have on your resume. Generally nice people who mean well. Fascinating collection of individuals, with quite a bit of diversity for a top firm.

    Cons

    While the people are nice, the bar is high and it is still an up or out system, although the firm will help you along as much as it can.
