Sometimes, work-life balance maybe unpredictable but then you do get enough unstaffed time to rest

    Pros

    Outstanding people to work with and for! I do not personally have any issues with anyone or the company itself. Bain truly expresses their corporate culture and have stuck by it in my opinion. Always willing to lend a helping hand and very open environment where you can ask anyone whether you have a question or concern.

    Cons

    For some there may be long hours at times, but you work hard and do your job and the reward is greater than the time put in.

    Pros

    Great training ground, excellent global training programs at every level from AC to Partner. Opportunity to form global professional networks and friendships. Smart and motivated co-workers who tend to be extremely collaborative and helpful. Strong learnings and exposure to a breadth of business challenges. Excellent benefits and compensation (relative to industry jobs, not finance jobs).

    Cons

    Like all other top consulting firms, the hours and travel can be very demanding. Stress levels can run high. It's difficult to establish a normal life schedule during the week because a new project may mean being on the road 4 days a week. People often describe themselves as feeling "on call". The Bain culture is known to be quite conformist and emphasizes work hard / play hard -- this may or may not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in knowledge management and systems that help teams get a good jump start and not recreate the wheel. Keep investing in strong mentorship/coaching models.
