    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training environment: instittionalized professional development systems, with regular chats with supervisor and mentor, formal review after each case, consensus review after every 6 months, global training program every 1.5 years of your tenure on average, local training program every 2-6 months each year (depending on level). Development criteria common across offices.
    Strong culture: true north, results driven, answer-first / hypothesis led approach, etc; culture common across offices, but some variations in work-life balance.
    Strong global network of well-connected offices (and hence opportunities), like 6-month transfers, permanent transfers, on-demand transfers

    Cons

    Sometimes work can be physically very tiring, without creating a lot of value for the client; leadership team's ability to manage client's direction and expectation can vary wildly
    You will not learn/develop too deeply in any technical knowledge or expertise: e.g. financial forcasting and valuation modeling
