      - Gamma A,D - Bootlicking Good

      Oct 12, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Gurgaon, Haryana, Haryana
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      People who want to progress their career through bootlicking should join this firm. Leadership is always looking for people with these qualities and do fast track promotions for them. If you really want to learn and grow this firm is not for you. Focus is on your billability and not learning. Earn them well and they will provide free liquor and food

      Cons

      Hire and Fire. Its a one man show out their if he likes you success is yours HR will be seen on first day and on last day

      Overall it was great to work with BCG, it offers you a ton of benefits and perks, like free food, free creche services etc. etc.
