    Pros

    Amazing people, varied projects, constantly learning, very supportive senior management who are constantly exploring how to make bcg a better place to work.

    Cons

    Fewer short strategy projects than in the past, although I’ve still done several. Hours not great but not killer either - typically 9am-830pm although with spikes here and there, maybe I’ll work until 1030pm once a fortnight. Staffing can be frustrating as they make you feel like you have some control when really you have very little.

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work with very smart and driven people, personal development opportunities, great offices, well stocked kitchens, fantastic wellbeing program in Australia, opportunity to get involved in committees outside of your role, strong focus on diversity and inclusion, recognition programs in place, regular office events to feel connected, active social calendar and the best Christmas parties and conferences I have been to!

    Cons

    Incredibly fast paced and high performance culture (which is not for everyone and can make it feel stressful).
    Lots of travel involved for consulting staff which impacts work life balance and sustainability.

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn’t hurt to slow down a bit.
    Continue to focus on wellbeing and look after these wonderful people before they move on or burnout.
