Pros

Interesting work. Smart people. Change-oriented clients. Collaborative atmosphere. Best colleagues. In general, I have found Bain to be a great place to build my career over the past five years. I look at external opportunities, and haven't found anything to be as remotely compelling as continuing here. And, when I look at the competition - I think that we work with a broad, diverse client set on their most challenging issues, and that we really partner with them to make sure they can implement what we recommend. And, not to be cliche about Bain, but the colleagues and relationships I've built have been phenomenal. I know these people are the ones I'll be in touch with 20 years from now, on a personal and/or professional basis.

Cons

Despite working hand-in-hand with our clients to enact change, we aren't actually responsible for making the decision and sometimes that is very hard to accept...especially when they don't end up doing what you think would be best.

    Pros

    Smart People, lots of incentives, they do a great job to help you have a good work-life balance considering the hours that are worked.

    Cons

    It's not always stimulating in this position. Work comes in waves and more often than not, I'm not really excited about my work.


  2. Bain is a great place to work, if you don't have a family

    Pros

    The people are wonderful and you will learn a ton. And you'll get a great job when you leave.

    Cons

    The travel and hours are brutal if you have a family. If not, they're still tough, but probably pretty manageable

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the "we don't work that hard" BS in recruiting.
