It's a very fair-minded, progressive company. They value women and female leadership.

There is a very serious "good ole boy network" and a culture of feifdoms which keep you from excelling in any department

This is a typical consulting firm. Expect more flexibility sometimes, because this a small firm - but at others, expect less, since this is a small firm and, especially during proposal season, it's all hands on deck. As the company grows, it's liberalizing, but it's experiencing some growing pains. It has yet to iron out a family-friendly maternity or remote work policy. Compensation is competitive, but bonuses are lacking, compared to the big consulting firms. (On the other hand, unless you're a manager, your 9 to 5 is basically 9 to 5.)

Maybe. Cons: Maternity leave is standard here (unpaid FMLA, plus whatever you're able to "save" in personal and sick leave). The company is fairly inflexible when it comes to working remotely vs. on-site, though this varies by manager. Pros: The company seems to offer equal opportunities to men and women. Many senior consultants and managers are women (though its few directors are men).

Terrific policies in place - but significant distance to go for women in leadership and in compensation

Although they have women represented in executive positions, a more formal sponsorship program would be helpful

Experience will really vary from manager to manager. Each group has different dynamics and the manager of that team is usually doing everything they can to ensure team success and great morale across the team.

Maternity leave is not fully paid, but something is better than nothing.

Amex has a positive, relationship-based culture and recently announced a great new parental leave policy. My one (gender-related) complaint is that there are not as many women in senior positions as there should be given that at lower levels some departments are dominated by women.

Deloitte is a place where it's really up to you to drive your career and collect a strong support group around you. The key to succeeding here is giving it your 110% on projects, finding key leadership that will advocate for you and getting visibility through firm initiatives. I have loved my experience here and see that the firm really is making an effort with their Flexibility and Predictability initiatives (cross-country moves for family, flexible work schedules, parental leave) and rewards practitioners for it.

As a consultant, you will be expected to travel at some point. So to the extent that travel isn't family-friendly, the job won't be family friendly. It just comes with the territory. It seems like BCG is trying to do a lot to make things easier for parents, but again, the travel is a limiting factor that is hard to work around indefinitely, though you can avoid it for periods of time.

Expect to travel a lot. Not many positions allow you to work from home or have a good work life balance.
