Smart, passionate people; probably the best of the big three if you want to do consulting

Consultant (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Bain & Company full-time for more than a year

Pros- Smart, passionate people, who really care about each other and their work
- Very much a culture of "work hard, play hard", with senior partners just as ready to let loose and have fun as the new associate consultants
- Culture focuses on helping each other, and succeeding as a team, yet still acts as a meritocracy for rewarding performance; meritocratic comp becomes more pronounced at more senior levels

Cons- Long hours are often part of the game at management consulting firms; anecdotally Bain is the best of the top 3, but the whole industry isn't the place for those looking to work 9-to-5
- You will live in PowerPoint. Except when you're living in Excel.
- High pressure, demanding schedule. You may love that, or it may grind you down. Probably both.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
