The best part of BCG is its people—teamwork at its best in all projects I've been involved in.
I always wanted to work in the crossroads of science and business, and I can't think of a better place than BCG to get these experiences. I keep getting exposure to the most interesting and challenging tasks in the life science and health care industries—and almost always from the high-level strategic perspective. As a part of the BCG Knowledge Team, I work on multiple projects in parallel and have many international interactions daily—often with very senior people in the organization—so that every day is different and exciting.
But what I think makes BCG truly unique is its people. Never have I experienced a place with such a high concentration of smart, fun, and humble people. This is not only a place to work on interesting projects—but also a place to make great friends!

Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The breadth of projects I get to be involved in, and the bird's perspective I get on how things in the world are connected.
Q: How has BCG helped you grow and succeed?
A: I get professional and constructive feedback on every project I'm involved in, and based on this feedback my manager and I set up tailored training plans and exciting goals. There is always something to learn, and I have developed many skills throughout my time at BCG: traditional "hard skills" as well as "soft skills," such as interpersonal interaction, teamwork, and listening skills.
Q: What international experiences at BCG have been the most interesting for you?
A: I worked in BCG's Boston office for 6 months through a BCG working abroad mobility program. It was truly exciting to move to a new city in a new country and get to know new awesome colleagues, and get all the transition support from BCG throughout.
