The best part of working at BCG is having the chance to change the world by being a part of a team full of friendly, open-minded, and lively people.
As a student of economics, improving people’s lives and creating sustainable impact for the world had always thrilled me. While doing my research, I came across BCG as a firm known for its tremendous contributions to various businesses. Later, when I joined BCG, I was very impressed by the opportunities given to consultants to help people all over the world. When I saw the client implementing the solutions I proposed even in my first project, I was totally convinced that BCG was the right place for me to express myself.
At BCG, advancing progress all over the world translates into creating impact not only for the clients, but also for your colleagues, and the company itself. Rather than a small part of a huge organization, BCG makes you feel like a huge part of a powerful family by respecting your opinions and encouraging you to take the initiative. By bringing your ideas to life in BCG’s progressive environment, you can feel as if you’re having an impact and see that your actions really lead to changes for the better.
Doğa joined BCG’s Istanbul office in 2016 after he earned an economics degree from Bilkent University.
