We are predominantly regional with plenty of exceptions

McK moving from national to regional/office

Yeah, ours is coordinated regionally, with visibility across the country. I’m on a project right now with Principals from Seattle and NYC, a PL from Dallas, and the Consultant / Associates are from NY + Dallas + Atlanta

Bain has always had a home office staffing model. No changes recently or planned. Usually end up with something like a third of cases M-Th travel, a third lighter travel (every other week or Tu-Th, etc.) and a third in office or within commuting distance (though those without families often stay in hotels in the burbs for those). Rough approximations. Your team (from manager/principal down) is from the same office 90% of the time. Partner usually too, but that varies more.

Bain is mostly from local office. BCG is region. McKinsey is national / international from what I remember

McK is moving to be more regional, that’s the only recent shift

We’re home office staffing, not local. Clients are all over but generally within same region
