Do any of the MBBs in North America offer sabbaticals (e.g. where you can take 1-2 months of unpaid leave annually or biannually, in addition to your paid vacation time)? Is there a tenure requirement in order to be eligible for such a program? Thanks for any insights

McKinsey offers this program annually and semi-annually where you work 80% or 90% of time with proportionate pay. I know a lot of folks that do this every year, with the requirement that you need to be in good standing and have 12 months of tenure (not 100% sure on that)

like

Even without this program, I know folks that get unpaid leave to do outside activities or take a break. Lots of flexibility.

Bain does as well. You can do 1 or 2 months off, and plenty of people do it every year or 2 I think the tenure requirement is at least consultant level (post MBA role) and 12 months of tenure. But I am not certain on that.

like

You can keep benefits on Bain's dime for one month; if you do two months you have to pay the premiums for the second

like

BCG does after 18 months, time for you where you take 2 months off unpaid but keep benefits. Think you can do it every 2 years? Not sure exactly on that. You can also take LOAs unpaid without benefits as you please.

like

You can take Time for You every year. And you don't have to pay for your benefits during Time for You. If you take LOA after the first of the month, I believe you actually get to keep benefits through the end of the month, too!

Thanks all!
