We also don’t have junior Associates in the US - only Associates

Yes - individual contributor, you will own a module on your cases... you maybe get an opportunity towards the end of your second year as a Consultant to manage an Associate so you prove your leadership capabilities before being promoted to Project Leader, but this will be in additional to your individual contributor role

Often informally, yes, but it’s not a formal manager role

Thanks BCG1! So what’s the day to day then? It’s basically an individual contributor role?

Towards the end of your second year post mba? That feels really late?

Not at BCG at least

Going into last night I had a 10 point lead with DeAndre Hopkins to play and a flex (David Montgomery or Allen Robinson) and my boss had Taylor Lockett.

Leaning towards Robinson since Montgomery hasn't had a good game since Week 2. Thoughts?
