At BCG, Allies bring a sense of collaboration and excitement to their teams. They create an atmosphere of trust and support in which people can do their best work. Minjee connects the dots to see the bigger picture.
I don't sacrifice today for tomorrow. At BCG, I learn, grow, and create value today.
Since I was young, I knew I wanted to be a lever to unlock other people's possibilities and change the world in positive ways.
I joined BCG in 2005 as an associate and still enjoy working here, because BCG is the perfect place to realize my ambition. Every day I learn something new, think through client challenges, generate new solutions, and implement ideas with the client. I believe that what I have learned from past projects, like-minded colleagues, and trust from the clients are the greatest assets of my work.
Minjee holds an MA degree from Seoul National University and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
Q: What inspires you about BCG?
A: I’m inspired by the way BCG pioneers new consulting models to serve the client's evolving needs better. Recent acquisitions of Digital Ventures and BrightHouse are just two examples. In addition, BCG partners with many bodiess, such as Save the Children, the World Food Programme, and the World Economic Forum to create social impact. BCG is continuously looking for new challenges beyond the scope of traditional management consulting.
Q: Why is BCG a good place for a woman to work?
A: BCG’s Women@BCG initiative supports the hiring, nurturing, and sustaining of top female talent. BCG offers equal career opportunities for female consultants. The firm also understands the unique strengths as well as concerns of women and offers many support nets, such as one-on-one career advice and a flexible working model.
Q: What characteristics do you believe define a BCGer?
A: Every BCGer is unique. However, I see the great commonality in terms of values: pursuit of client impact with high standards, team spirit, and growth in capabilities. BCG consultants can work with other BCGers anywhere in the world as a team from day one because we share the same values and never compromise.
