The timeline seems to be different now versus last year thanks to omicron. Looking forward insights from anyone in the same boat. Thanks.

Hi all, reaching out for help. I’m in a senior position at an investment firm where I’m the only woman and it’s toxic. I’m being micromanaged and have lost my entire professional self worth and just feel generally demoralized. I know I need to move on and will but it’s going to take a little time to find the next thing for me. My question to the group is an ask: survival strategies. How do I get through the next few months here? I refuse to leave my year end bonus behind me. Tia

Hello! Is anyone at BCG who could give some advice?

I've been networking to apply for an open role at a new BCG office, but everyone I've talked to says they're working about 60 hours a week, traveling every other week. Currently working 40-45 and happily married. I like my gym and my city.

I do love to be busy and I'm feeling kind of underutilized in my current role...

How do you actually, practically, balance personal life needs and intense work? Is that worth the personal life trade-off?
