Supporting Veterans and Former Military at BCG

Leaders United
Our military and veterans employee resource groups support and empower BCG veterans, ensuring that they are able to successfully contribute their own unique experience and skills to the firm. Members include BCGers from all around the world that were formerly in the millitary or intelligence agencies – all of whom have successfully transitioned to BCG and brought a strong foundation of leadership, mentorship and adaptability to the firm.

We ensure our veterans' success through ongoing training, coaching, feedback, and formal and informal mentorship. We also offer opportunities throughout the year to connect and engage with other members at events and conferences.

From 1:1 mentorship opportunities, to help navigating BCG's network and resources, our support makes strong leaders even stronger.

Meet BCGers

Our veteran and former military members range from Assistants to Senior Managing Directors to IT specialists, working across every part of BCG and at every level. 

"Leaving the military felt like a big step. The ex-military network were great at welcoming me in and setting me up for success from Day 1. The mentoring and support network, and seeing a few friendly faces, helped me to build strong foundations from the start. It enabled me to focus on why BCG had hired me and applying the skills I had to offer from my time in the Armed Forces."

"On my first day at BCG, one of the members of the Veterans@BCG Network found me before the day was even halfway over. He welcomed me in person and made sure I knew how to find him. Coming into the corporate world from the military can be extremely daunting. It made an enormous impact to know that there was someone else in the office who understood my background and was there to help."

"To me, the Veterans@BCG Network is an opportunity to give back. When I was a new Consultant, I had a lot of mentorship and support from veterans that I found incredibly helpful as I grew my career. Now I have an opportunity to help the next crop of veterans transitioning to BCG to be successful in doing all the great work that we do."

"BCG offers unwavering commitment to Guard, Reserve and veteran employees. My leadership and team foster a culture supportive of military service. Service members are clearly valued as critical and enriching to our organization. I’ve been especially grateful for outstanding benefits that ensure my family is well cared for while I am transitioning on and off military duty. BCG and its dedicated Veterans Network truly enable my service to our country and communities through the National Guard. I feel fortunate to work for this outstanding company!"
