Pros

This is an incredible place - I've been stretched so much and yet so strongly supported, it's been both a hell of a learning experience and a hell of a lot of fun. The laser-focus on resluts is invigorating and effective and it's inspiring to see the impact we can make at clients. My biggest concern choosing Bain over a competitor was that the companies might be less 'premier' but my first few projects have all involved co-creating strategy at the C-level of Fortune 100 companies. Now I'm actually hoping to getting experience at a smaller/privately held company. I can't recommend this place highly enough, as an empoyer or business partner.

Cons

You will work hard, and long. If you're not someone who can get passionate about transforming a client's business, it would be hard to sustain the enrgy level necessary to succeed here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up.

    Pros

    Client engagements are overall very interesting and focused on the most important issues
    Culture is top rate
    People care about your development

    Cons

    Travel can be draining. Seems to be increasing
    Can't ever be 100% sure that your personal plans will stick
    Premium product offered to clients means there's never room to relax

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being selective about client engagements. Growth at the expense of good people isn't worth it. Thanks for the support!
