    Pros

    Treated as a full-time employee and given full-set of responsibilities (no watered-down tasks), great regimented training program and events for interns, transparent and clear (and frequent) feedback mechanisms inspire personal and professional growth

    Cons

    Experience is very dependent on your specific case assignment (including client, supervisor, team, etc.), although internship managers do screen the cases very carefully

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Upper-level management did a great job at reaching out to interns and making sure we felt part of the team and company. This really meant a lot!

    Pros

    Consulting pros: Varied projects/tasks, professional development/exit ops, early responsibility
    Bain pros: Fun-loving culture with extraoridnary team environments, private equity opportunities, true focus on results at the client level

    Cons

    Hours are not bad (~60/week), but are very unpredictable, can't commit to something like a late Weds dinner with a friend. There's a lack of transparency (maybe necessary) on how activities such as staffing, sourcing, and fees are run.

    Pros

    Bain is a great company to work for - they put a lot of effort into reviews, expectations are clear, and everyone wants to help one another

    Cons

    The cons are the same as they are for every consulting job- the hours can be long, the travel can wear on you.
