Am a lateral from industry. Aside from the pay, I really don’t understand what the hype was all about. What do ppl here know? It’s been eye opening to say the least.


It’s all marketing lol


I’ve seen the insides of many companies at this point and I’d take BCG over any one of them. But it’s a company with people in all their flawed glory like any other company it’ll range from people who’ll amaze you to people who’ll make you wonder how they got through the interview process. The hit rate for good, smart and thoughtful people is higher than average but definitely not 100%

Saving this thread in case I don’t get that offer.

Same situation. Moved from Deloitte and completely miss Deloitte.


Let another Big 4 for McK - it’s much better

Would like to point out for people that have lateraled in the past year, Covid BCG is not representative of ‘normal’ BCG. I lateraled in 4 months pre covid and the difference is day and night


Define soon, I personally think things will begin approaching normal in the fall, 6-7 months from now

Just turned down a FAANG offer and accepted offer to be lateral at MBB...did I mess up? Was data analytics offer & even better pay😢was too love locked by prestige....fml


I worked at BCG for 4 years and have been at Google for three. My comp trajectory is way higher here at G than BCG was promising... and that’s not even risk-adjusting for up-or-out.

Hope you called your recruiter back.


Yep I came from B4 and the experience so far has me whelmed


I’m about to start at McKinsey as well (tomorrow) and am a little worried about the same. Would love to get more of your thoughts on this

I think that’s mostly just BCG


Have had only good MDP experiences. Sorry, it has not been the same for you.

Hello! Okay, so in the workplace when coworkers ask about holidays everyone always mentions their family - husband, wife, kids. I always feel so uncomfortable when they assume I have a boyfriend/husband when I have a female partner but I feel like correcting them or just saying my partner will get me judged. Do you think the workplace just isn’t too accepting of sexual orientation for always assume the gender roles or am I just completely overthinking this?
