Pros

- The people: Every company claims this, but Bain does an impressive job of choosing people who are fun to work with. Many of my best friends are former coworkers from Bain.
- The clients: Bain gets engagements with many of the "most desirable" clients
- Less travel than other consulting firms

Cons

- Long hours: if something needs to be done to satisfy a client it will be done. Managers are good about making time for really important personal issues, but it still takes up most of your life.
- Consulting: in general I think consulting is a parasitic industry
