BCG’s Athens office offers an open, flexible, and lively environment that allows staff to work on 21st century strategy while gazing at the Parthenon and reflecting on core values.
At BCG in Athens, our aspiration is to partner with clients to win in a very challenging moment for our country. We are proud to collaborate with leading organizations in key sectors of our economy. We also aim to contribute to our local community through our work with leading cultural, philanthropic, and educational foundations in Greece, and also through our concrete participation in the economic recovery efforts. Most recently, we worked together with some of the largest investors in the country and key policymakers to develop proposals on how to retain and attract large investments in Greece—a key lever for recovery in the current context of the economic crisis.
We hope you will find our site helpful in learning more about us. Welcome and thank you for your interest in our office!
BCG in Athens, which opened in 2001, is located in one of the most ancient cities in Europe. The office has developed into a key player in the Greek consulting market, playing an active role in shaping the local economy across industries. Beyond Greece, as part of the Italy-Greece-Turkey system, the Athens team is highly involved in the broader Mediterranean and Southeastern European markets, with a mix of local and international relationships and assignments.
With Greece going through turbulent times, the Athens office is very much involved in helping clients on the ground, articulating and implementing the right strategy to win in a challenging environment.
Also in line with the overall philosophy and mind-set of The Boston Consulting Group, the Athens team has been involved in a number of social-impact initiatives:
At BCG, I have learned two very important things. First, always look for the bigger picture of a problem or situation I am faced with—and take a meaningful perspective toward it. Second, always ask myself, "How can I add value?"—and that question should apply not only to our clients, to my colleagues, and the office but to my life and the society I live in, too.
Even though I am not a Greek speaker, I have had the most amazing time since day one at BCG in Athens. The team here is like a family, and not knowing the language really doesn't hold you back! On the one hand, I've been able to work on two important social-impact projects for top Greek nonprofit institutions, and on the other, I supported a pillar Greek bank to define its next strategic chapter in the context of the economic crisis.
If you are looking for a place to grow outside of your comfort zone, then look no more. BCG in Athens stretches your mind across communications, creativity, problem solving, negotiation skills, you name it! What's more, you will get to interact with senior executives across the corporate spectrum, gaining invaluable insight into how the best Greek companies are run.
With a reach that extends far beyond any borders, BCG in Athens offers a world class opportunity to take up challenges anywhere in the world. I cannot think of a better place for anyone looking for a truly international consulting experience.
