Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men
to other women
Support for women dwindles the lower down the ladder you are, leaving those with the fewest resources and greatest dependency the most vulnerable. More disposable and less visible administrative roles don't have access to the same organizational backup or negotiating muscle of six-figure consultants; obviously that's truer for women at every level across the board. Neither HR nor my manager were willing to act on my behalf after a partner and managing director repeatedly violated company policy with inappropriate (sometimes illegal) personal requests; as a direct result I resigned immediately after securing employment elsewhere.

Ask around and understand what the experience is like for the women you meet with. Ask about the portion of women and how it compares to the local area. Be sure that you agree with the reasons. Also -- if there are no women, it's probably not a good sign. Even as an intern, I felt like I was treated differently than my male colleagues despite the fact that even as full-time employees, only a small portion was expected to remain at BCG before child-bearing years.
BCG is very supportive of women and constantly working hard to overcome the previously male-dominated culture. Our benefits are quite generous, and you can really take as much time off for things like maternity as you want (it just won't be paid after 12 weeks). It's client service, so there are always last minute requests and "fire drills", but in general it is quite flexible, without the need for "face time". This was very important to me after having kids.
