At BCG, Explorers are unafraid to embark on new journeys. They try new solutions to untangle complex problems and drive transformational change. Laura finds clarity in a complex world.
BCG supports my growth every day, providing me with apprenticeship opportunities beyond comparison.
Searching for an opportunity to explore alternatives industries and segments, I came across consulting. After learning more about the major consulting firms, I fell in love with BCG.
I never expected to learn as much as I have at BCG. Our culture of apprenticeship is reflected in the dedication that teams place in your learning. Additionally, BCG has a number of best-in-class training programs that prepare you for a successful career.
As a female consultant, I have encountered challenges that my male colleagues have not faced. BCG has provided me with unparallel support to overcome them. The Women@BCG program is a worldwide initiative that works closely with female staff to empower them with tools for a sustainable and successful career at BCG.
Laura graduated from Davidson College and holds a bachelor of arts in political science and Mandarin Chinese.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I like most about my job is that it offers the possibility to solve challenging problems and situations every single day. With each case comes a new question we're trying to answer. Whether you're an expert in the field or not, every project is different and the solutions we create are completely unique to that client—creating endless opportunities for you to challenge your thinking.
Q: Why did you choose to work at BCG?
A: I chose to work at BCG primarily because of the people. Never have I encountered a group of individuals so talented, motivated, and collegial. Beyond quality professionals, BCGers are incredibly interested in your well-being—both within the firm and beyond it—and will go out of their way to help you succeed.
Q: What are some of your favorite places in the world and why?
A: Two of my favorite places in the world are Cartagena in Colombia, and Boston in the US. The first, because it is my hometown, right by the ocean, and it's always summer. The second is Boston, a city I spent four years in and where I started with BCG. It's a beautiful city with tons to offer, all within walking distance. One of the things I love most are the seasons, all of which are completely different but provide opportunities to do completely different things, such as skiing, both in water during the summers and snow in the winters.
