Work-life balance not sustainable; flexibility options are constrained. Many examples of unconcious bias.

Find female metors early (there aren't a lot to go around, but try hard), and listen to what people tell you about the senior partners - find the ones who have a reputation for supporting women.

If you plan to only spend a couple of years, it is a good launching pad. But once you get past the Engagement Manager role, your advancement (and comp) depend on partners saying they are "supporters". This is when most women have to leave, as the (mostly male) partners will not support women and create opportunities for them. I have had senior partners lament to me that they just can't get other partners to support women, bring them on to clients, etc.

It is possible to make your own Mckinsey. Speak up and ask. You will be surprised at how flexible the firm can be.

McKinsey is making a good effort to get and keep more female employees, so I thought there were a lot of opportunities to have mentors, join office groups, etc. There is a high premium placed on being a frequent contributor during meetings, which is challenging when that's not your style.

You have to be very good at setting boundaries to keep work from taking over your life.

hey are working hard to find opportunities for women, however, it is tough to go back into the typical consultant role after having a baby. They are still trying to figure out what models will work.
