Experienced Hires

Regardless of your current industry or area of expertise, you have qualities that BCG values highly. These include maturity, specific topic knowledge, interpersonal skills, and an informed fresh perspective—all of which can enhance our offering to clients. Whether you have a few years or a decade of professional experience, we invite you to see why BCG may be the right choice for taking your career to the next level.
What BCG Has to Offer

As an experienced hire, you have a good chance of joining BCG in a position that is higher than the normal entry level. From day one, you will interact with the senior management of our clients, who are among the world’s leading businesses.

Whether you are looking to leverage your industry-specific experience for our clients or prefer to expand your horizon by translating your knowledge and expertise to other areas, at BCG, we encourage you to chart your own course. Most of our experienced hires end up combining the two approaches. And given that BCG is the world’s leading strategy consultancy, you can be assured that a career with us will be particularly rewarding, offering excellent opportunities for both professional development and personal growth.

You will expand your knowledge base and skill set considerably as you tackle high-level, strategic business challenges that span a wide range of topics and industries. Throughout, you will work closely with some of the best minds in business, both in BCG and on the client front. Indeed, our clients are led by dynamic and innovative management teams who are among the most notable in today’s industry landscape. The insights, perspectives, and big-picture thinking you will develop in the process of your assignments will prove invaluable to your career.

You will also gain a tremendous sense of ongoing satisfaction from the results-oriented nature of the work. The work you do will have genuine, real-world impact, as you will help companies rewrite the rules of business. In doing so, you will create your own path to tremendous personal growth.

What to Expect

With BCG’s extensive support, you will find the transition to consulting easy and the work environment second to none. We will give you the training necessary to allow you to “hit the ground running” and very quickly make an impact.

On a day-to-day basis, you’ll be working with colleagues who value your experience and talent and encourage you to go further and truly maximize your potential. They will stimulate, challenge, and support you.

We offer a structured career path and invest in each consultant’s continuous learning: your development is important to us. We have a strong brand, and because we are growing rapidly, the number of career and personal-growth opportunities for individuals also continues to grow. At BCG, we reward you for excellent performance, promoting you to the next step when we feel you are ready to take on additional responsibility. The path to becoming a partner and managing director at BCG is much shorter than the path to joining senior management in many of our client companies.
