Pros

The best part about working at Bain is the people. The people make the fantastic culture, provide wonderful professional development and coaching opportunities, and make the job fun. The people are incredibly smart, contributing to a stimulating and challenging work environment. Additionally, Bain's clients include the top companies in most industries, so there is always an opportunity to work on very interesting, challenging and important business issues. Finally, given the project nature of the work, there is tons of variety, providing a new and interesting business problem to work on every 3-6 months.

Cons

The negatives of the job include travel and long hours. Many clients are not based near the office and require some regular travel. This can get tiring week-in and week-out. The hours can also get long, depending on the project (65+/week). However, neither of these two factors is necessarily the case. There are plenty of locally-based or light travel options, and while some weeks have long hours, they are balanced by shorter weeks or down-time in between projects. Finally, given the size of the company, advancement is very structructured without much room for flexibility to accelerate or decelerate based on individual needs and abilities. For those who like stability and structure, this could be a positive thing.
