Great about work/home balance but not generous with lunch hours and breaks. Overall a very positive experience.

BCG is committed to attracting, supporting, promoting and retaining women. These efforts are at the top of the executive team's agenda and visible in each office.

    I plan to take maternity leave. BCG offers a generous paternity leave as well which helps normalize parental leave across genders.

    BCG offers great programs to provide flexibility. In addition to top notch maternity leave you have the option to take up to 2 months unpaid leave each year and the option to switch to part time (and then back again to full time) at any point. The part time programs are very attractive (e.g. you can work 50% but will accrue pay and tenure at a higher rate)

Formal flex-time programs (60%, 80% time) recently introduced however still very much in "beta" mode in terms of feasability.

You can expect to be paid less than male peers, Taking time off for family is frowned upon but you aren't always asked - so don't volunteer it. Work/life balance just doesn't exist - you have to protect your time fiercly. If you're lucky you'll get a great manager, it's about 50/50.

    Maybe. If you are self directed about you're career you can make it happen here. If you want support, guidance, mentoring or anything along those lines you're going to have to make it happen on your own. Being proactive about your needs and having a plan is key.
