Growth Fueling Inconsistency

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Bain & Company

ProsGreat compensation
Great way to gain additional post-MBA experience while exploring a variety of industries
Opportunity to work with clients at a very high level

ConsLots of inconsistency at smaller offices.

Growth of Atlanta and Dallas offices exceeded the ability to attract candidates at the level of quality of other North American offices, especially at manager level where they've been brought in by lower-caliber firms.

Reality of travel is that once you get away from an office in a city that has a big base of potential clients, you'll be on the road all the time. Staffing has also become national. Can be hard to build mentors within your home office if staffed under managers based elsewhere.

Some consultants work for the same client for case after case.

Advice to Senior ManagementPartners need to stop creating "make-work" engagments where they start a case that's ill-defined just to retain a client, and then waste months on scope when the team is already staffed up. wastes time, wastes client money, and kills morale.

Promote managers from within the office- stop the outside hiring or do a better job of indoctrinating new managers.

Increase transfers from more-desirable offices or else smaller offices' cultures will never catch up.

Find a way to recruit and retain women in Dallas office. Prevent it from becoming a boys' club.
