    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (more than 5 years)


    In early years you learn lots of analytical and business related skills; very fast paced


    Lot of time and effort spent in managing internal egos and messaging; client work often not scoped in a way to drive results (very low risk environment).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risks, encourage managers and partners to take "operational" jobs, and see a world beyond Bain to develop really deep expertise.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview Details

    First round interview on campus followed by final round elsewhere - did not advance to final round.
    applied online with a resume and cover letter and was contacted by their campus representative to set up the interview. Two standards cases for the first round, zero fit. You have to nail both cases to advance. You can't be passive, you really have to drive from beginning to end
