    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I would like to take time here - BCG take care of well being of every one - Free food and snacks ( Only point many people think not to shift) - Very good health insurance which covers dental and vision care - Party hard and outings - Your career would be great if you are under a good manager (but pretty less chances) - Smart jugard implementation crowd - Good to have exposure for 2-3 years only

    Cons

    Here comes the reality - Over time(make sure sacrifice ME time) - Blame game culture not supportive crowd to work with - No Job security - I have seen two layoffs at senior levels like manager and above they were laid of all of sudden they won't come to office then you will get gossips that they have resigned (this is way back before corona) - Much delayed promotion (saw people at same level with 7 years as Lead) - Entire universe they have only benchmarking projects nothing other than this,after some time you will not be able to sell yourself with domain skills a big hit to your CV - Starting from last year less than 10% hike - Politics (dangerous politics I would like to highlight) - Rude top management - Racism,red tapism, rating based on gossips - No value for lateral entry they just believe inside groups - Start a group and spread gossips around until it reaches managers - Heavy pressure employees would be kept in PIP frequently - If you are at Bangalore then don't forget you don't have a strong management to hold you back it would be like you are vendor to Delhi office
