I do know a few people at BCG who specializes in that type of work, not a huge group but does exist. They’ve done some impressive work

A lot of them are ex-UN, ex-gov, etc. some home grown

My understanding is that at McK consultants take a pay cut when doing social impact work. No pay cut at BCG so highly competitive with staffing as mentioned above

Right. Case work is fully paid for the team and typically free for client (pro bono) or cost-only for client (no Bono). Secondment, which is typically, a 1 year staff gig, has the pay cut.

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.
