Pros

I truly believe there is no better place to start your career than at Bain. At Bain you are given opportunities to work with senior level executives, solve challenging business problems, and spend each day with co-workers who are incredibly talented yet down to earth

Cons

In a professional services firm lifestyle is not always predictable but management does the best they can to plan ahead to reduce issues

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bain can do a better job providing opportunities for ACs/Consultants to develop more expertise in areas they are passionate about

    Bain provided the best post-graduate Business education I could have received at any job.

    Pros

    Bain has a great culture - people you enjoy working with and spending time with outside of work.

    Cons

    We are very tenure-based in promotions. It is a meritocracy, but only within certain broader guidelines for required tenure at certain positions.

    I worked at Bain & Company

    Pros

    Working at Bain was a pleasure and a joy. My colleagues were smart, impressive and enjoyable to spend time with. I learned a tremendous amount and felt prepared for my business life, post-Bain. I now have friends for life and an exceptional business network.

    Cons

    More multinational clients and time 'on the coal-face' with clients means time away from home. I am fully supportive of being client-facing but it's a conscious trade-off that applicants will need to make (and no different from the competition).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the fantastic global training sessions!
