    Pros

    My reviews are majorly associated with BCG India - BCG is undoubtedly one of the best places to work at - The platform gives you end number of opportunities to explore and develop yourself - The organization provides many perks to it's employees (which includes mid day meals and snacks, year end bonus, home broadband reimbursement, health and life insurance, international business travel and yearly off site) - I have heard people saying that growth in BCG is slow and time taking, but i personally feel if you perform exceptionally well and deserve a next level then the company will not ignore you and they will take proper care of your needs - Life at BCG is challenging but at the same time, always gives you a positive vibe and proud feeling that you work with such a great organization - They give you flexibility to work from anywhere, there are no fix working hours given one has to take ownership of what they are supposed to deliver (on time).

    Cons

    - I am sure most of the people are waiting to read this information - The salary that they offer to new hire is better than their competitors considering the market standards (that's what they claim) but i am not really convinced with this. - The organization is growing globally so are the headcounts, which in a way impacts the physical space in the office and the year end appraisals and perks. - They invest a lot on their people and the technology but still people sitting in the senior management position are mostly old and not ready to adapt the new ways to operate and still believe in doing manual work over AI

    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Freedom to explore and learn with no limitations. Everyone is given chance to chose your interest area and build your knowledge. Senior leadership is very approachable and always ready to listen and support you (both personal and professional). Rewards and recognition is very good which gives chance to represent your work and get rewarded. Lots of parties , booz, offistes :-). If you are ready to work hard sky is the limit and growth is slow for under performers. Quite a mixed bunch of senior researchers with some being very proactive and smart workers while others very laid back. Performance and great feedback from stakeholders is the key to grow as CT is considered on the top.

    Cons

    Options to explore movement to consulting from DRS should be taken seriously. Team feels our top leaders are capable of doing this but this is not taken as a priority and no action is taken.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the same, keep inspiring people and help them grow. Should do more catch-ups and understand individual needs especially for AR and early R cohort.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Boston Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great parties, lots of fun, open and trust based environment. Meritocratic and considerate in measuring people performance and rewards. Good work will be recognised. Transparent CDC process with clear metrics. Supportive leadership if you are ready to work hard and have new ideas to improve the service.

    Cons

    Work not that great. Simple research and data pulls especially when you come with experience. Should have track to consulting. Newer options for content and complex research introduced but they are not tested as yet.

    Advice to Management

    Stay supportive and try to create opportunities for ARs and Rs as a lot of us come with some experience.
