It's not uncommon where you hear that this type of organisations (like McKinsey, BCG), who are known for consultancy, data science always take the backseat.
That translates into tasks which are not data centric but helping consultant with data or doing backend job which not really rewarding in a long term basis. And, data science being the back seat guy you don't see cutting edge innovation or intersting job as well.

All the above is based on second hand info.

What's your view on this?

BCG gamma is tailor made for data science and analytics . Don't think DS will take a back seat there . Apart from the analytics department, MBBs also have their internal analytics products that you can work on and take first hand experience.
Having said that yes, there are chances that you might not do real DS work. (And this is true for every company)
