Understand what team you are joining, what the specific expectations are from that segment of the business and where you are likely to have flexibility and autonomy within that (and where you won't). Also note that who you work for is important in addition to what you do - there is a strong culture of sponsorship here but that means you have to find a sponsor to be successful.

    Flexibility is great on the internal management side, especially as you get more senior. It can also be pretty good for consulting staff at senior levels if people ask for it and work hard to arrange it.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    12 paid / 3 unpaid

    Since I took leave (twice) we have gone to 16 weeks paid (8 disability, 8 parental leave) for women and 8 weeks paid for men. I think it's a great benefit!

    Better align internal senior-level management roles (which especially appeal to those with families) with true leadership and respect within the firm.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Great people work here and the teams and energy are incredible, not to mention the benefits. Having a strong sense of your own priorities and boundaries is important to maintaining work life balance within the intense demands of client service and senior internal roles.

BCG is an excellent employer and would recommend it to all women that are dedicated to their careers and enjoy a truly collaborative and consensus driven environment. You make your own career, so don't expect to be spoon fed here. Everyone is treated fairly and as an individual...very respectful.

Great place to work for women. Culture that is inclusive and supportive. Good family policies in place and provides flex when needed. High volume of work can make it challenging to balance work and family commitments.

    I enjoy a great deal of flexibility and also ensure that my team has the same.. However, I think that this can be boss/team dependent and not everyone has the same level of flex.

    Focus on sustainability of workload. In a successful, growing business there needs to be appropriate investment in functional infrastructure to ensure workloads are sustainable and work-life balance achievable.

Great place to learn and develop. If you are client facing, lots of opportunity to progress; if you have an internal role progression is much slower and unclear.

    Flexibility depends on the role you have and the level at which you work.

While the company is doing it's very best to promote women and support gender diversity, the current working model (travel 2-4 days a week) makes it very hard for dual-careers households, especially with children
