Hi I am a 2nd year at Oxbridge - I had an offer from the BAP programme but a mate of mine at BCG says that they are closing?! Is this true?! HR doesnt reply to my mail

They havent closed - but redundacies are looming. We over hired at the begining, especially at Director level - and now cant generate enough business to keep all of the chargeable and afloat.

Be prepared for some serious CV time ( i myself am out of here faster than you can say rabbit)

I heard that Oliver Wright ( major MCk player back in the day) was going to head back into MBBB territory - rumours have it Bain are redeveloping their cost cutting methodology and are getting in touch with a few of the old school players.

BAS to Ivan (#1)

The sky is not falling, the emporer is fully clothed, and BAS is not closing. Nor are there loads of redundancies looming. Anyone who is being managed out is a question of performance -- BAS is still recruiting very heavily.

Moreover, if BAS is top-heavy and they're getting rid of Directors (news to me), I don't see how that affects someone going on the BAP programme?

I'm in BAS; a Director. My girlfriend told me about this posting.

BAS is doing really well. We need another 100+ people this year. We are sold out.

Shame that some still try and use this forum for negative press.

By the way, I work with Oliver. He's great and not going anywhere !

DM2 to jeki (#5)

Having spent 12 months with BAS and had a great time.

I would generally agree with the points above

BAS is here to stay and developing well but it has over promised to people it has hired so expect a fair number to exit in the 6-12 months.

Izzy to Anon (#7)

Thats not what i heard. I heard that after spectacular flops like Thames water ( which went to McKinsey) and a few bad government spins, BAS is moving towards dedicating a great percentage of thier consultants to operational consulting - quite different from the 'high level advisory' they preached before...

A few facts...

- BAS is an advisory practice not a strategy house

- BAS did not complete for any work with Mckinsey at TW

- % of resources working across our competencies remains fairly constant with a fairly significant ptoportion focussing on operational performance improvement

- its a fun place to work with some great people

The Top Consultant to anon (#10)

what you say "advisory practice" what exactly do you mean? what is the advice they provide? is it basically accountancy advice, i.e. stuff to do with technical company matters?
