Senior Associate, Warsaw
At BCG, Allies bring a sense of collaboration and excitement to their teams. They create an atmosphere of trust and support in which people can do their best work. Julita is unafraid to try new things.
It’s an irreplaceable feeling when you realize that going the extra mile every day at BCG—even at such early stage of my career—actually translates to serious changes in business.
Prior to joining BCG, I worked in different positions in operations, from purchasing to strategy in the consumer packaged-goods industry. During my first year at BCG, I had multiple chances to leverage my previous experience in various projects.
My first observation was that at BCG every valuable input is welcome and treated equally regardless of position, which creates the environment that enables personal growth at a really fast pace. Second, seeing how my contributions can impact real business at such an early stage of my career became a greatly rewarding feeling. I also quickly learned that going beyond the obvious is an every day job, rather than an occasional task. All this put together make every workday exciting.
Julita graduated from the Warsaw School of Economics, majoring in finance and accounting, and has a CEMS master’s degree in international management from the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration in Bergen.

I am actively participating in promoting the company as a place to work for women, and I am proud to say that BCG treats this issue as one of its priorities. We actively support young women in development and finding their professional goals by organizing dedicated conferences across the country. Furthermore, BCG provides a great environment for women to network, thanks to close cooperation among regional offices. In addition, there are multiple women’s initiatives organized within the office that are a perfect platform for exchanging experiences and bonding.

A: I am looking forward to exploring the opportunities BCG has to offer: its variety of cases in terms of industries, case topics, and clients that provide endless opportunities for growth; but also through possibilities of getting to know the world, since BCG is a global company with offices on every continent.
