    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They put an incredible amount of focus on developing employees professionally and ensuring that your time with the company is enriching, enjoyable, and stimulating. The culture is incredibly social and collegial.

    Cons

    Given that it is a partnership, there is a degree of opaqueness associated with some aspects of the company.

    Pros

    Bain can really pick good people! Everyone at Bain is the type of person you'd want to be friends with and go hang out with on a Saturday night.

    Cons

    Long hours for sure. But the people make those long hours very tolerable
