I stumbled across Glassdoor.com today, and I thought it had some interesting information. The website collects employee reviews (from current and past employees) and salary information for a large set of companies, including all of the top consulting firms.

I read through all of the reviews for BCG today, and the most common gripes were unpredictable (generally bad) work-life balance and excessive travel, which are both common to consulting regardless of the firm.

The website would probably be a good resource for anyone trying to identify target companies within specific industries.
