I have been working at Bain & Company

Pros

I am always amazed how flexible Bain management will be to accomodate personal needs. Time off, or reducing travel or different staffing. It feels like they really care about me as a person.

Cons

We are on the road a lot...this is a hard job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We do a good job with providing externships, but I think we coule even offer more externships...not just for SACs, but for all levels.

    Bain has been full of learning and professional development - there's no place else I would have rather started out.

    Pros

    *Work on really interesting and important problems
    *Lots of formal and informal training that help you get valuable skills for the future
    *Wonderful group of people who are fun to spend time with

    Cons

    *Hours can be long sometimes
    *Most travel cases are two nights a week, which is managable, but a minority are three nights a week which can be tough
    *Work can be stressful. It's important that you actually care about solving the problem and helping the clients. If you do, then that helps make it through difficult situations. If you don't really care, then this isn't the right job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to give excellent coaching and make yourselves available to the teams. Always manage the clients' expectations to avoid scoop creep. (Most partners are good at this).
