    Pros

    I think Bain is the best place to start your career. The learning opportunities, responsibility, and executive exposure are unparalleled, and the people who work here are amazing.

    Cons

    The hours can be challenging, though the firm prioritizes protecting weekends.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows, ensure that we are preserving our light hearted, entrepreneurial culture

    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.

    Pros

    Bain truly values and invests in their employees. While everyone works hard and is held to high standards, performance is recognized and feedback is always helpful and constructive. Fun events are planned through out the year for all employees to attend. Excellent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Depending on your role, there can be a lot of travel and long hours, but I do feel its worth it. Promotions are typically given on a set track- so even if you're a superstar, you'll probably have to wait until you've been there a set amount of time to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
