At BCG, Seekers go deep into the challenging issues our clients face. Their curiosity empowers our teams to facilitate change and add value to society. Sally finds clarity in a complex world.
There are good times, and there are difficult times, but never bad times at BCG!
Working at BCG is truly intellectually challenging. I rarely feel fully prepared for my next case and always find the learning curve of it beyond my initial expectation. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by how much I need to learn about a new industry within a very short time; other times I simply get caught up in navigating through complex problems.
But it has been exactly those uncomfortable moments that have made the journey rewarding and have helped me grow, both professionally and personally. At BCG, I have been provided with ample opportunities to fully develop myself, and the guidance and support I have received from my project teams have been tremendous.
Sally holds a bachelor of arts degree in finance from Tsinghua University and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
Q: What is a typical day like for you?
A: There's no typical day, and it really depends on the type of case I’m working on. Generally, a lot of interviews, discussions, and meetings will fill most of the day. Team members will often meet up to crunch numbers and write slides. In the evening, I prefer to carve out at least two hours of time alone, sometimes in a quiet corner by myself, to distill thoughts and focus on solving the difficult part of the task without interruption.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Solving interesting problems with a team of very smart and nice people!
Q: Why did you choose to work at BCG?
A: I really like the people and culture here. I found myself easily becoming good friends with BCG alumni when I was still in B-school. Later I did a summer internship here and was amazed by how well BCG takes care of its people.
