BCG ~2 months paid. Does not impact YE bonus but you don’t accrue tenure ie promotion delayed by ~2 months

Good call on the bonus and tenure call outs, same here as well.

Bain is two months paid. Starting mine probably late January early February. Completely unplugged from the company, maybe a couple of staffing conversations as you get closer to returning, but those are maybe an hour total...

Same for M as BB described above
