Boston Consulting Group – Why Work With Us?


BCG formally started operations in India in 1995, opening its offices after nearly a decade of work in the country. Today, we are located at DLF Cybercity in Gurgaon, Nariman Point in Mumbai, and Hyatt Regency in Chennai.

When you work at BCG, you join a company committed to making an impact - for our clients, our people, and society overall. You'll connect with colleagues and clients in a collaborative and supportive environment.

BCG India's client work encompasses the spectrum of challenges facing today's business leaders in a variety of industries, including: financial services, health care, industrial goods, consumer goods, technology, energy and utilities, and infrastructure and engineering, as well as government and non-profit organizations.

BCG's high-growth environment stimulates individual creativity and initiative, allowing you to participate in shaping one of the world's fastest-growing economies while building skills and gaining knowledge and experience on critical strategic issues in India and beyond.

We seek a broad range of skills—from digital to interpersonal to analytical—in order to work with the most influential organizations in the world. The work we do every day—going deep to discover key insights and having the courage to break new ground—leads to a lasting impact on companies, industries, and society. Learn more about our roles and career opportunities.

BCG's interview process is a dialogue, designed to help us get to know each other. Here's what to expect.

Our interview process for consulting positions varies by location. Typically, however, you can expect at least two rounds of interviews—each consisting of one or more interviews or assessments. These interviews are commonly divided into three parts:

KNOWING MORE ABOUT YOU.

We want to learn more about your background and personal experiences to see how and where you might fit in at BCG. We'd like to hear about your experience of leading and making an impact in any field.

UNDERSTANDING HOW YOU SOLVE PROBLEMS.

Working with your interviewer, you’ll analyze a case study and develop solutions to the client challenge it poses. The case will typically be based on a real BCG project, giving you insight into what it’s like to work here. Often, there are no right or wrong answers; instead, we’re evaluating your thinking process, strategic skills, and ability to make a strong case for your recommendations.

ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS.

This is your chance to ask questions about working at BCG, including your interviewer’s personal experiences. Come prepared. Our interviewers will evaluate your ability to listen and communicate effectively, and whether you present yourself positively and persuasively. We value intellectual curiosity and creative thinking. Sometimes, though, we just want to find out what it would be like to spend a week on the road with you—so it’s best to simply be yourself.

 

Working at BCG means support, inspiration, flexibility—and countless opportunities to grow and learn. Learn more about the variety and richness of the BCG experience.


Social Impact

There are many ways to make a living; working at BCG gives you the opportunity to make a difference.

More than 50 years ago, our founder, Bruce Henderson, inspired us to put forth ideas that would change the world. Today, we remain deeply committed to using our talents and resources to address global challenges and focus on topics that have an impact on some of the most underprivileged in society.


Career Sustainability

At BCG, we believe that innovation can only thrive in an organizational culture of openness, flexibility, and mutual respect—where all ideas are heard regardless of tenure and where people are supported to pursue a path that’s right for them.

BCG was number four on Fortune's “100 Best Companies to Work For” list in 2018—a reflection of our commitment to the career sustainability and satisfaction of our employees.


Flexibility@BCG

At BCG, we know our teams need a diversity of profiles and capabilities—and our clients demand it. One way to help achieve this diversity is to give you the flexibility to make your career more professionally sustainable and personally fulfilling.


Learning & Development  

At BCG, you’ll always stay one step ahead, thanks to the variety of your on-the-job experiences combined with the richness of our learning and development program.

Every new BCGer is hired with the belief that he or she will be a long-term employee, capable of substantial professional and personal growth within the firm. We recognize and value each individual’s desire for career development and work to create world-class opportunities and programming in order to enable that growth.


International Mobility   

At BCG, the world is your office. Every year, more than 25% of our consultants work outside their home country, taking on international jobs from Abu Dhabi to Zurich. And about half work on global teams led and staffed by BCGers from other parts of the world.

 Working abroad can be life changing—exposing you to issues and ideas that ignite your curiosity and expand your comfort zone. You’ll experience business on a genuinely global scale and learn how to bring together people from different cultures to uncover insights that challenge the status quo.

BCG’s global footprint gives you the opportunity to work with and gain inspiration from diverse teams of fellow BCG professionals—spread across more than 90 locations in 50 countries.

BCG is the sum of its people and the insights they bring to our clients' most challenging issues. Get to know more about BCG culture by exploring the incredible array of people who are BCGers.

Women@BCG

One of our highest priorities is advancing our Women@BCG agenda: increasing the number, success, and satisfaction of women at the firm. We are encouraged by our progress and excited about what the future holds as we enhance opportunity, experience, and work-life integration for all our people.


Diversity & Inclusion   

Diversity and inclusion are more than our ambition. They’re our advantage.

At BCG, diversity is one of our core founding values. Passionate, open-minded people of all backgrounds, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, expertise, and experience are fundamental to our success as they enable us to analyze problems from a broader perspective and challenge established ways of thinking.


Pride@BCG

From your first day, you’ll find BCG a warm and welcoming place. As an LGBT employee, you’ll not only receive leading-edge benefits—you’ll also be respected and celebrated for who you are and what you bring.


Alumni

Current and past employees have access to an alumni network approaching 22,000 former BCG professionals. Through BCG’s vibrant Alumni Network, you never lose touch, building lifelong—and often life-changing—relationships. The experiences you gain and relationships you build while working at BCG accelerate your career and open new doors of opportunity—within and without BCG.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (New Delhi) in January 2020.

    Interview

    the interview was fairly technical and qualitative at first. if you make it to the second round, guesstimates ,puzzles and case studies are asked. Just brush up your soft skills and ensure you can justify your CV.
