    I worked at Boston Consulting Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great learnings everyday - not only from daily research work but also from colleagues (ofcourse interact and appreciate the culture and environment)
    - Approachable seniors and other team members, enhances learning and exposure across topics
    - Ample opportunities to grow and nurture yourself (you have to make the most of the opportunities that come your way)
    - Option to choose your area(s) of research and flexibility to explore other areas as well
    - Co-operative leadership supporting your personal career goals alongside and providing the required exposure, customised to an individual's needs (make your ambitions known and set clear expectations)
    - Great work timings and not a lot of pressure

    All in all I have had a great experience during my time there and grown as a professional with research and mentoring experience. Opportunities come your way only if you are willing to take up challenges and make the most of it. Make the most of your time there!

    Cons

    Nothing really - it all depends of how you approach the opportunity :)
