    Pros

    Overall, I'm proud to work at Bain---we work collaboratively to help our clients achieve great results. The learning curve is steep and we tackle exciting problems.
    Personally, I've changed roles as my family situation has evolved, and I truly appreciate Bain's flexibility. I've seen many other people benefit from the flexibility, too.

    Cons

    The cons are driven by the industry--not the company. Consulting is a demanding profession, and the unpredictable hours and heavy travel can be draining.

    Pros

    Great culture and people. Training on fundamentals also very good.

    Cons

    Project experience depended heavily on the managers and partners. If partners can manage client expectations or project scope well, then expect to work your ass off for something they may not be well received.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on identifying the best partners and sharing management strategy for the group.
