I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for less than a year

Pros

The work is engaging and nearly everyone you work with is brilliant. Lots of effort put into personal development and growth. People really care about you, and the atmosphere is more collaborative than competitive.

Cons

Bain, like all consulting, has highly variable work. Sometimes it's very, very busy, other times it's not. The problem is that planning for it is very difficult. You can rarely commit to things outside of work more than 1-2 days in advance, if at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep valuing people above everything else, it really shows.
