Pros

Working with great people, learning a varied skillset and getting to know a wide range of different industries. Great career opportunities coming out.

Cons

Could be very long hours on some cases. A very steep learning curve, a lot of travel (though still less than the other consulting companies)

    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

    Very little control over cases, managers often don't know how to manage, hard to build industry expertise quickly

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so answer first with your employees
