They are very keen to encourage more women to apply so put effort into understanding what is important to them.

There are a lot of invaluable opportunities at this employer. It's a learn by fire type of atmosphere and being self directed is a huge asset. You learn a lot in a short amount of time. However, boundaries aren't always respected.

    The balance IS self guided but the expectations are to put in a lot of time and I felt a lot of guilt whenever I didn't work 13-15+ hour days
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. The consulting brand is very demanding and is for a certain personality type. It doesn't offer much work life balance without putting in "your time" and even then, you're still on the hook for a lot after hours and after client time.

Good place for women to work. It has gender related policies but not sure if those are implemented, awareness is great though

Your experience (lifestyle, job responsibility, overall statisfaction) can really vary from case to case, depending on who you work for. Invest in finding strong mentors early on before you might need them and then try to work with those people.

    If you make it to a certain level (manager or above), the company is more supportive and invested in you staying. However, if you're in a promotion window, you're in a hard spot since the messaging is if you really want this promotion, be ready to work like crazy for the next year.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Your experience can varry greatly from case to case. Pros: Smart people. Interesting top tier clients. Great exit opportunities and network. Cons: High stress environment. Long hours. Travel. Promotion process is intense and set up for most people to be pushed out. (>70% in my post business school class left or were pushed out by 3 years post-school). Hierarchical environment. I met and worked with some wonderful, smart people but ultimately, didn't find the work rewarding (too many iterations on too many decks...) or the environment supportive enough to stay.

By far the best consulting firm to work for in terms of work life balance but consulting as such is challenging for the following reasons and it could be exacerbated for females: long hours, unpredictable travel/staffing, some teams can get fratty and overall high levels of stress dealing with demanding partners and clients.

    Leadership is committed to making the consulting lifestyle work for both men and women. Plenty of programs in place for flex time, sabbatical, industry secondments etc. By far the best consulting firm to work for in terms of work life balance but consulting as such is challenging for work life balance so it's a relative scale.

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.)

  • Recommend to Women?

    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).
