The level of training and support was amazing from the start. From formal training – professional actors were brought in to help improve our communication skills – to the informal development from experienced colleagues and mentorships, the support was superlative and it continues throughout your career.
In the six years I have been with BCG, I have worked in Chicago, Boston and New York. My 2009 grad program cohorts are spread out around the world: London, Chile and India. On a daily basis, working at the firm expands your global knowledge.
The second that you join the firm you are given responsibility for a piece of work. You have to work with a client, get the information you need to manage the problem and find a solution.
It is a great environment to work in – everyone looks forward to going to work. There’s a real sense of community, you can bounce ideas off your colleagues and everyone is a team player.
Once you join BCG, you become part of the global family. Whether you stay two years or 20, we like to stay in touch. Having a big network of alumni is great because there is always someone to learn from.
