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
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.

The only thing is that I did not have the chance to do my best.

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.
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.

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.

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).

Generous by US standards but compares poorly against similar employers in the UK who normally would offer 26 weeks of paid leave
Yes
Maybe. Great place to start your career, especially as it's easier to be successful at this job if you're young and have fewer commitments outside of work
