    I worked at Bain & Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a challenging and enjoyable work environment with tons of energetic people. The culture is great and you realy learn alot!

    Cons

    There is a big "fraternity" culture that runs the show. Not really my thing. Overall it was a good time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    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.

    I worked at Bain & Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked that there were many opportunities to take on new project and quickly meet senior staff members as an intern

    Cons

    I question whether the intern culture accurately reflects what full time employment at the company would look like

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give as many opportunities as possible to low level staff to improve themselves
