Regional Manager

Human Resources

January 1970

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

Great maternity leave (4 months paid). More flexibility for consultants than business device team but it's improving

    Fundamentally, it is a flexible job -- more than most -- where you can pop out midday to go to a kid's doctor's appointment or whatever, or take time off for as long as you need to whenever you need to. There are some Flex programs built in as well to all

    Pretty flexible in terms of how long you take, but 16 paid weeks is norm.
