Pros

The firm worldwide has a great culture - the people in general are nice, interesting, and fun. There are excellent exit opportunities from any level as the Bain name and consulting skillset is valued in a number of jobs.

Cons

At the end of the day the quality of your experience is very much dictated by which cases you end up working on. If you get stuck on a 6 month case in an industry you don't like or a difficult client, there's not a lot you can do about it. That's true of any consulting job but I think people's experiences vary because of this. If you are unhappy though, Bain is good about making sure your next case meets your needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

True high performers at Bain aren't rewarded enough relative to their strong but lower-performing peers. This sometimes incents people to leave.

    Pros

    Tremendous learning opportunitites and really smart people to work with. You get to work on some of the most difficult business problems at significant clients and you get interaction with senior management at clients - people you would not get to work with at an early career stage outside the strategy consulting world. The environemtn is almost an apprenticeship - you get a tremendous amount of learning and coaching from those above you - if you are lucky to work with a good consultant/manager/partner you elarn a tremendous amount.

    Cons

    There really is little work/balance in the job. You are putting in tremendous amounts of work in order to get rewards (better jobs and income) down the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management at Bain was great - great role models for succeeding in business.
