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.

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.

I like working at McKinsey. Within the practice area I work, there are actually a lot of other women as well. I think the firm also focuses a lot of time and energy on trying to make things equitable between men and women. The bigger question in my mind is whether the hours and travel will be sustainable longer term as I think about having a family and wanting to spend more time at home.

There is a lot of flexibility to 'make your own McKinsey' -- and a real effort on the part of the firm to make the place more sustainable for dual-income parents. Women's attrition rates are still relatively high, but it is not for lack of trying on the part of firm leadership.

Some great male partners that fully support women, but there are some that have a bias.

It's a hostile environment where women are given far fewer opportunities and much less mentoring. Basic HR rules are completely ignored. I have been told this is because they do not fear lawsuits.
