Different perspective because I’m in Canada, but absolutely zero pressure to travel. We were just told to travel/co-locate only if absolutely critical to the project, and even if I was on one of those cases but didn’t want to travel anymore due to Omicron I don’t think that would be a big issue

McK Canada here - my previous 3 studies were all in person, 1 was at client site, 2 were collocating. No pressure at all, all were upfront during the staffing process and I was solving for in person. Peers who solve for remote are remote. Haven’t encountered anyone who was forced or felt forced to travel, in fact I’ve met many who want to be in person but couldn’t find the studies that weren’t remote

No pressure - there are several cases that are remote or local office.… but if you want to be part of a case that deems travel / co-locating in another office but you’re not willing , then you just won’t be staffed on that case.

Got it, okay. I feel a pressure at McK to travel during a pandemic

Definitely pressured to travel

Pressure to travel

Definitely pressure to travel if client requests it and is on site. However, you would know that up front and if you really didn’t want to travel staffing would not force you on that case, it would be your choice as a junior. There’s plenty more people who want to travel than there are travel cases. If you’re more senior though and it’s your main client…then gets a but tricky to avoid.

For co-location, maybe slight social pressure to travel (to do dinners, hang out, etc) but if you don’t want to…no one would care and people would understand.

We have so few cases that involve regular travel right now (US)… way more people that want to travel regularly than cases that involve regular travel. At some point that may shift though…. At least 6-12 months out though I’d guess, given omicron.
