We are thrilled by your interest in management consulting, and specifically in BCG. We think you will find that BCG has a great deal to offer you, both in terms of career development and life experience. At BCG Amsterdam, you will be working in a fast-paced, highly motivated and dynamic business environment. Together with our clients, we strive to solve cutting-edge and complex business problems through tailor-made solutions. And with our colleagues, we form a closely connected group who are supportive of each other inside and outside the office.
BCG in Amsterdam was founded in 1993 through a merger with local Dutch consultants Horringa & DeKoning. BCG Amsterdam's first office was situated in a beautiful country house in Baarn. With success comes growth, and when we outgrew the Baarn office we moved to Amsterdam. In 2007, BCG in Amsterdam moved to an ultramodern office situated at the Zuidas in the southern part of town. The Zuidas is an innovative, international business hub within close reach of Schiphol Airport and the historic city center, where you can find many cultural highlights that are worth visiting and some, like the famous Concert Building, that we have actually worked with!
Our Amsterdam office serves both Dutch multinationals and a variety of medium-size companies, institutions, and governmental organizations. Our consulting staff works on projects ranging from corporate development to operations in industries such as consumer goods, energy and utilities, financial services, and technology and communications.
BCG in Amsterdam offers broad possibilities for international experiences, from individual projects abroad to longer-term transfers. We are an active participant in our international Ambassador Program, offering the opportunity to temporarily transfer and gain experience in other BCG offices We also host international project participants and international ambassadors from other BCG offices all over the world, providing a very global atmosphere.
Our office fosters a culture that encourages professional challenges, development, and teamwork. The atmosphere is open, flexible, and lively and leaves room for individuals with diverse backgrounds and personalities. Although we all take our work very seriously, there is also plenty of room for fun. Throughout the year, you can participate in the many activities that BCG in Amsterdam has to offer, such as sport tournaments, a skiing trip, the annual fall outing, and our New Year's party.
Not too long ago – late 2010 to be precise – I was in a similar position as many of you today: Was strategy consulting a logical next step for me? Would I fit in at BCG? Was I up for the interview process? Etc.
In hindsight I can only say that applying and joining was the best decision of my professional life. I was looking for a dynamic environment and accelerated personal development. And I found all of this and much more: BCG is my professional home, shared with an inspiring group of colleagues with whom I work on interesting challenges across industries and geographies. And with whom I have a lot of fun on a daily basis.
Today I’m a partner focusing primarily on the Energy and Chemicals sectors – both fascinating global industries, each facing specific challenges and societal impact. In addition I head our recruiting team in Amsterdam, with a lot of passion: Our talented people make all the difference, and attracting the next BCG-generation is critical.
I can only encourage you to interact with us: You will only really know if BCG is for you when you get to know us – and we want to get to know you!
Partner & Managing Director
BCG colleagues support each other and are always willing to help each other develop.
BCG proves to be a wonderful environment to fill my personal backpack with the knowledge and experience I am looking for.
For me, working at BCG stands for helping others. I never expected this aspect to be so relevant in this job.
BCG offers me the platform to keep developing myself and help others develop every single day.
The diversity of people and projects makes BCG the ideal place to learn about almost any subject or industry; it allows me to learn something new every day.
BCG helps me challenge established thinking—of my colleagues, my clients, and most of all my own.
Each case is a great new learning experience where we add true value for the client.
After several years at BCG, I still enjoy working with the unique set of humorous people with bright minds.
