I think it's more a function of what type of work the office is doing. Not in Chicago office but I feel their work is more ops heavy, versus strategy, and it could be a reason. That & the local part.

True that BCG Chicago travels less. Why that is, I don't know the exact reason.

Thanks! ZS doesn't have a lot of travel and that has been great. I want to switch to BCG Chicago in a couple of years and I was hoping less travel!! Good to know..

"I Was flying like a kite that got stuck in a tree, soaked in sun, drenched in rain,
Trust me, even my senses were not ready to feel any pain

Until I swept away by a wind, hitting each and every mountain that was around,
The wind held me tight
Took me to the heights,
It made me realise that I'm not a kite that fly but a Bird in the sky"
