Boston Consulting Group Sorry if I'm repeating a post.. couldn't find a relevant one.
Can some at BCG demystify the up or out policy? Specifically, How much time does BCG allow to find a new job and does BCG help with the job search?
Thank you.Boston Consulting Group

They just secretly got rid of the executive search benefit

This feels more like demystifying the "out" policy 😂

If you are an Associate (undergrad) Consultant (MBA) you get 2 months full pay or 4 months half pay (full benefits) to look for a job, manager is 3/6

That’s after 1 year of exp only…. Doesn’t count if u leave < 1 year

Oh … I’ve never heard of anyone fired < 1 year… usually poor performers are given a couple chances

Also, you can take double the time at half your monthly pay. For example, as a Consultant, you can do 2 months at full pay or 4 months at half pay.

Do you work at all during the search time?

I am not sure other jobs are comparable, unless they are asking professionals to leave frequently..

Regretting moving in-house. I was an 8th year associate at a v10 biglaw firm but moved in house six months ago and am regretting it. The pay has been hard to stomach but the bigger concern is that the hours and work are not what I expected. Is it too late to go back to a firm since I was so senior when I left? Should I just stick it out a while longer and then find a new in house job? Appreciate any advice.
