Principal, Tel Aviv
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. Sharon finds clarity in a complex world.
The best part of working at BCG is developing close relationships with the client teams and hearing from them how impactful our work together has been.
In my pre-BCG life, I was an attorney and I was used to being part of the discussion when companies were contemplating how to structure and execute complex deals. As an attorney I was asked whether the solution designed would withstand scrutiny, and as a BCGer I'm asked what the solution should be! The exposure that BCG gives you to the development of the solution for companies' most complex issues is unparalleled.
BCG has provided me with a professional "reincarnation.” After my years as an attorney, I have been able to explore a broad range of industry and functional topics, including but by no means limited to: a full transformation for a global logistics player, operational excellence in a retail bank in Israel, growth opportunities for an education company in the US, and the development of a strategy for a utility in the UK.
Sharon holds a BS in finance and international business from the Stern School of Business at New York University and a JD from Cornell Law School.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I like most about my job is the diversity in our teams. In my time at BCG, I've worked on teams with people from more than 30 offices, on teams with between 1 person and 30. This exposure gives you a chance to not only meet a lot of interesting and talented people but also always to learn from different individuals.
Q: What’s the biggest impact you have had with your work?
A: The biggest personal impact I've had with my work has been as a regional trainer and member of the internal learning and development team at BCG. I've had the chance to work with and train the next generation of consultants and project managers at BCG and help them realize the full potential of the firm.
Q: What has been your favorite case so far?
A: My favorite case was my first case. We designed a back-office center for a retail bank and then worked in the branches, shoulder to shoulder with the bankers and tellers, to migrate activities to the new center. When we started, the back-office center was an idea on paper. By the time I rolled off the project, it was up and running with over 100 staff and supporting dozens of branches.
