Fantastic place to work

Former Employee - Senior Associate Consultant  in  Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Senior Associate Consultant in Chicago, IL

Pros

Great variety of experience while developing a highly transferrable skill set; the coaching and mentoring you will get is fantastic, you are given the tools you need to grow and continue learning; competitive compensation; international transfer opportunities can be life-changing; great exit options; and most of all the people are amazing (extremely talented yet humble); Chicago office is one of the best in the global system

Cons

The travel eventually takes its toll (though Bain does what it can to manage this and all the miles/points you’ll accumulate are a perk); your work-life balance and overall satisfaction for any 3-6 month period is highly project dependent (the rare poorly matched team or occasionally ornery client can make life difficult)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to invest in professional development of employees and never stray from the wonderful Bain culture

    Pros

    Smart down to earth colleagues, high impact work, great compensation,unparalleled training ground in business, high integrity partners, high focus on the individual, Bain always leans in when employees have challenges outside of work (eg health or personal issues). I have nothing but great things to say about Bain

    Cons

    Long hours, unpredictable travel at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the efforts to make the job more manageable

    Pros

    - Fun work hard, play hard culture
    - Best business training ground
    - Help make real change at clients, not just perform studies

    Cons

    - Lot of hours
    - Can be a lot of trouble, although they have improved this quite a bit (office dependent also)
    - Up or out meritocracy is good if you're going up, no so much if you are good but just need more time to mature

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the need for some consultants to take more time to make it to the next level, and give it to them
