    I worked at Bain & Company

    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.
