Are BCG referrals office or regional based, or would a referral in a different US office be possible/the same as a referral from an employee in the desired office location?

Once you get the interview I don’t think it matters unless you have senior partner pull

It doesn’t matter where your referrer is located as long as it’s the same region. Heck others will tell you that doesn’t even really matter. I have referred friends that are in a different location/office than me and they’ve received interview invites.

Hi Fishes,

I have been offered consultant role by EY. HR in verbal communication told me about the salary structure as Fixed + Variable % + Joining Bonus .
The offer letter mentions the Fixed and Joining Bonus but doesn't say anything about the Variable Portion. Is this okay or do I need to talk to HR about this?
