The nature of the job is inherently difficult, and there is still a long way to go, but they have made a lot of progress and the commitment is genuine.

BCG is committed to attracting, supporting, promoting and retaining women. These efforts are at the top of the executive team's agenda and visible in each office.

    I plan to take maternity leave. BCG offers a generous paternity leave as well which helps normalize parental leave across genders.

    BCG offers great programs to provide flexibility. In addition to top notch maternity leave you have the option to take up to 2 months unpaid leave each year and the option to switch to part time (and then back again to full time) at any point. The part time programs are very attractive (e.g. you can work 50% but will accrue pay and tenure at a higher rate)

I love the people I work with! It is a fast paced environment and I'm always continuing to learn and be challenged while working with incredibly smart and talented people. The benefits are also great for health care and leave.

    The amount of flexibility really depends on your role. Most internal roles allow for greater flexibility on a daily basis, but there are some that are more challenging to be flexible with as you need to be in the office on a regular basis and can't work remotely. Client facing roles while can be flexible are more demanding and require you to effectively communicate your time boundaries with client and team in order to achieve that flexibility.

Top management believes in greater value coming from diversity, and focuses on ensuring an inclusive culture for women in this traditionally male-dominated world of consulting. We're not perfect yet, and practices will somewhat vary from one office / region to the next, but overall I feel valued and supported as a woman at BCG.

    Practices somewhat vary from one office / region to the next, but as a general rule - I believe at BCG you are the master of your schedule, and the more you take this responsibility to manage your work vs. life commitments, the more satisfied you are! BCG offers great opportunities for people on consulting track (flex leaves, secondments, etc.), but also career shifts to other functions within the firm.

    Easier to be flexible day-to-day in internal positions, but there are formalized programs in client facing roles that allow us to work 3 or 4 days a week - sometimes you need to be willing to shift which days of the week those are week to week or month to month.

I have been able to craft my own path here - I've had the support to not only find what I'm good at but what I love ... and that's where I spend 80% of my time

    BCG has a term that I've heard many many times when something unexpected comes up and it's "family first": despite our size, it really is a close group and everyone pitches in to help each other
