    You’ll be going from first class citizen to second or third.

    Consultants are the bread and better of MBB. They will demand client services lifestyle: 60 hours minimum a week, expected to be on call with your corporate phone at all times, and a huge lack of respect for your time.

    You do get to travel on the company’s dime, but don’t expect to have time to sightsee. You’ll be working from your hotel room a lot while seeing tourists and families enjoying their vacations.

    Interviewed there a few years ago. People there seemed to think overly high of themselves. Maybe they were insecure? Is this for their Los Angeles office?

    But, why?

    Is the pay significantly higher?

      I'm not doing it for the money. It sounds like a fun job from what I read in the job description.

      I think you should speak to your ex MBB colleagues at Google. It's not what it sounds like.

      Sounds mysterious. Care to share what you know, UMbR31?

    The premise of the business is developing their ideas as small startups, either funded internally by BCG's partners, or either other partners, and spinning them off.

    Not really sure they can compete on tech talent or execution, and their competitive advantage really only comes through their consulting arm's relationships.
