    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.
