Boston Consulting Group how much of a data or technical background is needed to work at BCG? Do you think having no data analysis experience with 2-3 YOE will be a problem?

Top school, top perfomance at a previous place of employment will get you in some spaces that have nothing to do with data/tech.

Tech expertise is mostly needed at Platinion. Data is mostly at Gamma. For the rest you can get by without any tech or data knowledge.

Nope, pay rate is similar across teams. At more senior levels generalists usually edge ahead in terms of pay.

For a generalist track position you don’t need any technical background. We hire fresh grad philosophy majors for the Associate role.

I didn’t realize that if someone is a consultant at McK or BCG, whether or not they’re actually doing strategy work is not clear. There’s groups of you guys? So different tracks and promotion and pay grades? Every Bain AC or C is the same — some fluidity in PEG vs GP, but overall same. BCG/McK has different tracks — are some of these tracks “better” or more elite? How can I tell who is actually doing strategy work vs staff augmentation or implementation?

Feeling really frustrated and don’t know what to do. Interviewed early March, informed that I moved onto second rounds after ~2 weeks. Was told there would final rounds in late April but they never took place and haven’t scheduled it still.
