Suggestions for improvement

  • bcg is very inclusive so no improvement there . only issue is we moved form a traditional office3 environment to a open work space which is not conducive to work flow and work productivity is plummeting.

What I like about the company

pay is good, responsibilities are freely given out.

What I dislike about the company

working for a consulting company sometimes there is too much discussion just make a frigging decision. unfortunately the only time we wanted discussion they ignored the masses. we moved to an area of the city that is very hard to get to
