    Pros

    - Opportunities to work with the CEOs and leadership teams that are redefining the industry - Real impact with C-level clients, much earlier in your career than with other firms

    Cons

    - Innovative people rarely sit still for long - Bain folks go and start companies of their own - CEOs are demanding - we need to work hard to drive the impact we want

    Advice to Management

    - Maintain the growth company mindset that differentiates you from your competitors, even as you are overtaking them.

    Pros

    I have the privilege of getting up every day and working on client problems that truly matter. The challenge is immense, but I love helping specific individuals at my client to succeed and seeing the collective results of our work together. At every turn I am supported by a team of Bainies at my side. We are a team, and we team with our clients. Every year I think about whether Bain is the best place for me to continue to reach my personal full potential (across all dimensions -- career, personal, family), and every year I choose to stay at Bain. I know I am having an impact and am developing into the best person I can be -- as a business leader, colleague, wife and mother.

    Cons

    Having an engaging and worthwhile career means making some trade-offs. I travel 2-3 nights a week on average, and I work hard. However, I do not believe I work any harder than my business school classmates who are also career track/high potentials.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead the industry through a leading a collaborative culture that supports open communication, as well as innovative ways of working, including flexible models.
