The northern California location of BCG's San Francisco office allows it to serve a broad array of regional industries in the Bay Area and Pacific Northwest, including financial services, health care, energy, high technology, and retail. BCG in San Francisco provides clients with a wide range of expertise in a growing number of these industries.
Our office brings together consultants from many countries, cultures, educational backgrounds, and experiences. All of them came to BCG because they felt that we were the right place for them: the right place for a rewarding and challenging career, the right place to work with passionate colleagues and clients, and the right place to build professional networks and lasting friendships.
BCG in San Francisco is in the vanguard of much of today’s innovative companies and business models, making for a fast-paced and intellectually stimulating atmosphere supported by a relaxed and informal working environment. Creative thinking and cutting-edge strategies are both a West Coast and a BCG tradition: they’re in our DNA. We believe that a diverse organization—in terms of people, perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences—is critical to creative problem solving. Our diverse perspectives and unique solutions differentiate us in the market place. We are committed to promoting affiliation and providing support in order to make BCG careers highly attractive to outstanding individuals.
Our consulting staff hails from the far corners of the world, and from very diverse backgrounds—but we work seamlessly together. The office, located in the Embarcadero Center, offers outstanding views of the picturesque City by the Bay. We are steps away from the Ferry Building, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the California Cable Car Line.
San Francisco's proximity to Silicon Valley—and its strong core of both technology and biotech companies—has influenced our client base. However, with our focus extending to northern California and the Pacific Northwest, our client base ranges beyond technology and health care to encompass clients in financial services, consumer goods, retail, and industrial goods.
As a city, San Francisco has always been on the cutting edge of community service, and of developing new operating models for nonprofit and community service organizations. Serving the community is an important part of the BCG in San Francisco mission. The office undertakes social impact assignments every year that deal with important public sector issues. Recent projects include working with the Gates Foundation, the Oakland Zoo, and the San Francisco Food Bank.
The intensity of our work fosters a close family atmosphere within the office that extends into the staff's social life. We host a number of events where BCGers and their families can spend time together outside of the office and get to know one another better. We host an annual ski trip to Squaw Valley, a West Coast office group retreat, Friday forums, alumni events, Oktoberfest, BCG kids day, March Madness brackets, "design your own" events, and more!
Together, the Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle offices operate as a West Coast system, focusing on the market in the western United States. We cover a variety of industries, including (but not limited to) technology and media, healthcare, consumer, and industrial goods.
By teaming together, we are able to offer our clients a rich pool of experience and expertise to address their issues. We cross-staff West Coast projects to give our staff a broader range of opportunities across a variety of industries and practice areas on the West Coast. The offices also coordinate training and development around joint events, which gives staff from all three offices the chance to get to know each other and learn from each other.
