    I worked at Bain & Company full-time (more than an 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.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Pragmatic approach that designs and executes results that stick
    - People who team well and operate with the utmost integrity
    - Optimal blend of global scale with continued growth opportunities
    - Flexible platform over the course of your career
    - Very attractive economics

    Cons

    - Demanding career, but people attracted to Bain are ambitious by nature. You'll work hard wherever you go, because that's who you are. Might as well benefit from a more impactful and rewarding career if you're going to put in the hours anyways.
