    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.

    I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Always learning something new. Opportunities to expose yourself to different industries, markets, geographies. Surrounded by incredible people, who are smart, interesting, and mostly compassionate / interested in mutual benefit. Very low internal competition, extremely collegiate environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes you just have to suck it up and do work that's less appealing for a time. Not always an opportunity to work on what you want to work on, whether it be industry or time of work. You have to actively manage work/life balance to keep yourself sane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue over-investing in your employees.
