    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is the only company I have worked at that encourages their CSS (Consulting Support Staff) staff to grow and/or try different roles within the company. There is an open dialogue on your individual professional development. My direct manager is invested in my learning; she recommends training modules to me and matches me with peers when I need to learn a particular skill.

    Cons

    I wish there were more formal training for CSS at Bain, but they are working on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on recruiting and hiring the best CSS and consulting staff; focus on getting the culture fit right.

    I have been working at Bain & Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting and meaningful work, tons of fun events, personable co-workers, bosses are easy to relate to, pay isn't bad, either

    Cons

    Hours can be long and pressure can be intense depending on what case you're staffed on; all the fun you have on weekends leaves little time for rest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't start pulling us off of our case work so often and so early in the internship to work on our final presentations. I feel like we get more out of working with our teams than presenting 10 slides to a few partners.
