Pros

The people you work with are always high quality and geniunely invest in your future.
The local staffing model produces an environment that is more sustainable than other consulting companies I have worked for.
The culture results in a place that is fun to work in and long-lasting relationships inside and outside of the workplace.

Cons

The generalist model certainly has its pros and cons - especially when you join later in your career.
Bain's dominance in the world of private equity can result in some great learnings, but also pretty much requires its employees to take a tour through the demanding Private Equity Group at some point in their career.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic, the problems you are tasked to solve are challenging and interesting, and the training/coaching is second to none.

    Cons

    At times your schedule can be unpredictable and swing from very manageable to unmanageable, but this is to be expected in the world of strategy consulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the 1st-2nd years and make sure their team experiences are good; it will pay serious dividends when it comes to the quality of work they put forth.
